Under Attack!!

I went by the house last night to check on a few things (good thing I did, but more of that to come), and what greeted me at the side door?

This monster moth!!!



AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Okay, okay, so maybe it didn't really have horns and breath fire, and maybe it didn't skewer baby butterflies with a BBQ fork. . . but the thing was huge!!



It's body alone was almost 3 inches long - and I didn't plan on sticking around to see it's wingspan.

For some reason it seems that moths really like my new jelly jar lights, because this huge guy wasn't alone, there was 4 much smaller, non-monster sized moths keeping him company. . .
