There is no good reason for this picture to appear on a blog called Mister Meatball. It's a moth ferchrissakes. A moth that does not have a mouth, and so cannot eat.
On a food blog.
Six hours in a full-face helmet yesterday no doubt left me a bit dimwitted.
Still, I'm told that it's a rare enough siting that I should share.
This is one big mother. Six inches long, or close. It was in the same spot outside the garage all day yesterday.
And, yes, I Googled it (http://bit.ly/fsWoa). It's a Luna Moth. I won't soon forget it.
Why a living creature that does not eat decided to spend the day at my house will remain a mystery.
