    Giant Silk Moth......It was walking across my lawn yesterday afternoon. Not uncommon and not the first one I've found here but the first one in a few years.
    I released it, but I think it was at the end of it's life cycle. Usually the wings are damaged but this one is pristine.

    Here's weird one that I found outside the garage door. It looks like it has hair.

    Nice paint jobs on the both of them.
    I bet you could never find that sphinx moth on a background of dried leaves.
    That's the problem with trouble.
