Picture of the Week Thursday: The Moth

This picture was actually taken last week, but when we took it, I knew I had to save it for today.

Ed was working outside and saw this.

Of course he had to come get us. I have never seen one this big up close. We thought it was dead at first, but eventually, it flew off.

Isn’t it beautiful?

This second picture is to show some scale. Those are Ed’s work gloves. The moth was about five inches wide.
