When I opened my mailbox, this lovely creature flew right in my face. It startled the heck out of me. It was big and quite unexpected. Some moths are really pretty. Here are also photos of a couple of others I’ve seen, too.
I didn’t always like moths. When I was a young girl, I had an “incident” with a moth that involved one of the brown ones ending up in my glass of chocolate milk, then disintegrating. Fortunately, I grew up and moved past that experience to be able to appreciate these little creatures and the different varieties and colors they grace us with.
