Description

This moth landed on my tire seconds after I pulled into a parking space. It's the largest I've ever seen. Someone told me it was called a Warm Moth. Well, it was 100 degrees that day and the tires were sure hot. It stayed on the tire for at least 20 minutes before I scooted it off to the pavement. It had a wing span of approximately 5.5 inches, maybe more.

Description

Fascinating spider in our backyard peach tree. Hid in debris cluster until prey dropped into web...then attacked prey, biting it before spiraling around the grub, wrapping it in a fine shroud. Periodically raced along web strands to create a more secure attachment to prey.
