Description

There were 2 of these Moths out at dusk. 1 was much larger than the other. The smaller 1 wasn't afraid of me at all and would buzz my ears and face!

Description

On a cool September evening, a large moth flew in to my brightly lit garage. It was flying so fast around the ceiling lights. My dad helped keep it from harm by gently cupping it his hands. I sat in a chair and the moth sat on my hand for almost thirty minutes! My mom identified it as a Sphinx Moth and took some pictures, (coming soon). We let it go on a nearby tree in front of our house.
