Holy giant moth, Batman!

Batman is right because during our first encounter with Giant Moth, we were unsure whether or not it was of the blood-sucking-yet-crime-fighting species. Slightly disappointed, upon closer look we discovered that it sadly was not.

I've seen some big moths in my day, but this one was huge. I'm estimating that his wingspan was about five inches across.




Apparently Giant Moth has a certain fondness for our red door because he made more than one visit. Unfortunately, he decided to leave and discover brave new worlds before I was able to get a better photo of him.

Now you know how often I don't wash my windows.

Notice Giant Moth's torn wing. It kinda makes me wonder what kind of eeeevil villains he overcame that day.

What a hero, that Giant Moth.

That is a huge moth! I have a window like that over my kitchen window. It doesn't get cleaned much either.

You're supposed to wash windows? Why didn't anyone ever tell me that? That is a big bugger! There was a big butterfly in my garden the other day and I ran back in to get my camera and it was gone when I came out!

Cool moth! I am glad it is outside though. If that thing flew into me I would freak out thinking a bird was attacking me :P And yes, I have had birds fly into my head before and then laughed about it. Stupid, small birds flying into my head.

We have a window like that too. I wouldn't even think to clean it. Actually, I refuse to clean any of the windows in our place now since we are just renting and they were dirty when we moved in :P Everything was dirty when we moved in. I told our landlords that I am not cleaning a thing when we move out and they didn't seem to care ;o)

Our door is red?

HUH, did not know that!

Ok, I guess I did, but in my tired stupor somehow that came as a surprise to me.
