Fashionably Late, as Usual

In honor of Earth Day/Week, I have adopted a new pet. Rather, the pet has adopted my abode.

Now I will have you know that the old Wicked’s instinct would have been to swat at the critter and scream like a girl. Possibly breaking a hip while hurling myself down the front steps. I’ll have you know that the new, improved Wicked has become more nature friendly.

Behold, the beauty that has taken residence on my porch light.

Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to name that moth.

Ready. Go!

Future librarian speaking up here...it's a luna moth. Known for growing up to 5 inches across,they're night critters so sighting one during the day is very rare apparently. They only live for about a week, so celebrate his brief appearance...

I knew I could count on you guys.

We now have a name: Elspeth the Luna Moth.

Hey Mutlupb if I am not mistaken, Robin is a librarian or works closely in that field.

Mutlupb meet Robin, Robin meet Mutlupb.

Godzilla.

And you'd better score one of those white jump suits with matching hard hats for when you need to run screamin in the other direction.

I love the giant moths, when they are not dive bombing my head.

Its a luna moth. Name it after one of the umpteen million moon goddesses.
