Day One Hundred Eighty One 2013

This moth has beautiful markings and a two-inch wing span. It was attached to my front porch post all day and never moved. Until I poked it with a pencil just to see if it was alive. It flew right at me and made me jump back like a sissy girl.
I can’t believe it let me get in its face to get a close up. I never knew they have googley eyes. [I can’t believe this is how I amused myself this afternoon ~ hope y’all found better ways to amuse yourselves today]

Wow! Great shots! What a pretty moth. I've never seen one like that before. Would love to have seen you jump when it came at you :0) I bet you couldn't see it if it was on a tree. Great camouflage.

Makes me think of Silence of the Lambs. Great shot!!

I would have jumped if this thing flew at me! Interesting critter.
