My first Black Witch moth!

Jerry texted this picture to me while he was out walking the dog.  He knew I would be impressed by the size of the moth, even though it was dead and covered with ants.    I didn't see it until 4 minutes later, but I called him as soon as I did, and asked him to please blow the ants off it and bring it home.  And of course, he did.

A Black Witch moth.  Up against a ruler, you get a better idea just how big it was.

The underside.

Dead, but still a nifty find.  Hopefully the next one will be alive!

Sluggish in summer

This pretty, pale slug was enjoying the gunk that grows in the bottom of the birdbath.  My birdbath rests on the ground, and this slug, I later found out, lives under it.

My blogging has also been sluggish, I know.  Don't know what to say about that.  I still like the bugs.  Just not interested in blogging.   I will leave Bug Safari up, because there's a lot of great pictures and information.  I think there are a bunch of comments hung up in moderation-limbo.  I'm very sorry if one of them is yours.   I will try to go through them soon.
