Silk Moth

Shortly after moving into our new house both of my children were home to visit. Late one night we went out to see the stars as it is quite dark in the country. We were wowed by the shear numbers of stars and all the constellations visible.

We were treated to another wonder, first noticed by my younger child. This was the silk moth attracted to the light emitting from the front room. Its picture we share with you. We all marveled at the size to this moth, whose wing alone was about three inches. Even more fascinating are its antennae.
