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!
