The other day as I went for my morning walk, I came upon this HUMONGOUS moth laying in the middle of the road. It’s wing span was a good 6-8 inches.
So, being the super home school mom I am, I called ~~read yelled really loudly at 7:30 am, being totally inconsiderate to all the neighbors~~ to the daughter to bring the camera so I could take it’s picture. Why didn’t I go back and get the camera myself? Because every 14 ½ year old daughter, recovering from an ear infection should be made to walk down the middle of the road, barefoot, to do her mother’s bidding. It is a right of passage. That, and I was to lazy to walk back the 2 houses down and get it myself.
Seriously, I knew that she would want/love to see it in person, and she did.
So, here is the nasty thing……..in all of it’s fuzzy glory.
This one just totally grosses me out!!!
I took the pictures, went on for my walk and came home to upload them. When the daughter saw that the pictures that I had taken didn’t get a “good close-up” of the antenna, she had to go back out…wearing my flip-flops. Why did she have to wear MY shoes??? Now my flip flop has touched moth antenna. Does that make me cool yet?
So, to all the science
freaks lovers, please don’t totally write me off. I mean I did take it’s picture, aaannnnd I let my flip-flop touch it’s antenna. However, I refused to bring it home like the daughter asked, and I am totally ignorant as to what kind it is. I am quite positive that Donna, Barbara-Sue, Applie or someone else will be sure to tell me what kind of nasty moth this is.
So, do your kids wear your shoes?
