Huge monster moth sited in my computer area on Sunday evening


Not kidding - that sucker looked like about the size of a small bat and even looked like one sort of but prettier and not trying to fly at everything - was trying to escape. I caught it and released it outside my door and hope it flew away where it belonged. I did a semi search while chatting with Janelle and came up with this pic that looks similar to what I had in my living/computer area Sunday night - there are no measurements on this moth so can't really tell if this is something close to what I actualy saw. I believe his wing span if he were to spread out flat was approximately the span of my hand from middle fingertip to butt of palm - probably around 6-7 inches in width - See what you all think - E :)

Cas, funny - it was scary more than ewwwwwy - lol - It flitted around here until I picked up a bag and jut held his wings and could get him outside - I hope he flew away where he needed to be - because he was too pretty to kill - and that would have been a huge mess - if he got squashed - lol - I'm not sure that really is what kind of moth he was but he looked similar to that - E :)

Wow! That's so cool! Moths and butterflies don't freak me out, but anything that crawls does--spiders (eww, big phobia there!), or centipedes, or other crawly bugs. Blak!

Maybe your little friend was planting some inspiration on your hard drive!
