Moth Mystery

No bridges nearby!

I believe Arthur, the sidekick of "The Tick", was also a moth (man).

I think luna moths are beautiful. I love all moths and butterflies. I think they are the most lovely! They make me happy!When I was a little girl I use to kidnap caterpillers to watch them transform, they always died!
I hate moths but have to say Luna moths do look quite pretty (never heard of them before). I'd run a mile if I saw one though, like curlypearl - I hate things flying near me. I practically ran through the butterfly house at the zoo one time when my SO was taking photo's and actually said the f-word in front of my children when, at another zoo, I was foolish enough to attempt the bat enclosure!

Sexplosion!!! Hahaha!!!

A bald eagle recently swooped down and took something from my yard (I think it was a chippie). That's my second sighting of a baldie in my area, but this one was right in MY yard.

I am over ran with hawks, turkeys, guineas, and the occasional stray chicken that roams to the top of my mountain.

Oh, and owls! A family of owls just moved in beside my house, and I couldn't be happier. Well, if I can get a picture I will be ecstatic. They keep moving further back in the trees when I try.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Wait a minute ---- you can't legally kill a bald eagle.

And only species that are not endangered please.

I honestly can't remember what my grandparents did. It was impossible to tell who was hiding in the woods, shooting, period.

That is just.....off the charts awful to me.

It was. I think my papaw talked to someone about it, but again, I can't remember for sure. That was a long time ago. At that point only one wildlife officer worked several counties. People got away with much much more.

They were incredible to watch. They had their nests in dead trees, across the road from my grandparents house, next to the river bank. A big mountain stood behind them. *Sigh* My grandparents kept binoculars by their picture window to look at them. We were all upset.

Despite idiot rednecks, bald eagles and other birds of prey have made a pretty good return. I think DDT killed more birds than rednecks, so now that DDT is getting out of the food chain, big birds are better off. I see lots of big birds in the wild now...and I didn't see ANY when I was a child. Huge change for the better over the last 40ish years.

I think I'm going to go back to thinking about Mothman. Or male moths. Or moths in general.

It is incredible that you got to see one in your yard, RCW. I'm glad they are numbering up in the wild again. The next time I speak with a wildlife officer I need to ask if they've had any sightings.

Maybe, sometime soon, I won't have to visit Eagles Nest at Dollywood to look at them anymore.

I don't condone killing any birds of prey, especially not bald eagles. There's no reason to ever kill them...they don't taste good, they're not pests. The only reason is to be an ashole.

And...are there any MothWomen? Or can MothMan date outside his species?
