Another wonderful photo!

It must be very strong to be able to carry that whole human hand. Is that what it feeds its young? The talons are so tiny I can't even see them! Please be careful around those carnivorous moths.

I agree

Do you know why the Egyptians made a huge Sphinx? Because these moths are people-eaters. There is a purple one that inspired a rock song years ago. That song probably saved hundreds of lives since everyone's awareness of the danger of these mo(ns)thers became acute. And you must remember the Japanese movies. Where do you think they got the idea for those films? From real life!

Be careful. They look cute but that is their Venus-fly-trap mode.
