Super Moth!

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Super Moth!!!

The rainy season always brings new and unusual creatures to our door (literally).  We thought we seen about all there was to see in terms of large insects until the other day I saw what looked like a bird on the door frame of the house next door as I was walking by.  On second look, I noticed it was a huge moth with a wingspan of about 8 inches.

Often we see birds here catching moths for supper, but it would take a pretty big bird to tackle this one!
