Last night my neighbour, Kim, helped me to round up a moth stuck to the outside of the third floor window screen. She managed to knock it off and I gathered it up when it landed on the ground. A little googling and I discovered it's probably a type of hawk moth. Kim said it looked like a bat from a distance. It's a spectacular add to my collection:
Yesterday morning I found three wings of a polyphemus moth, one of the huge giant silk worm moths we have around here. A bat or bird had a great meal. Some birds actually pick the wings off the moth before eating it:
I also discovered those lily beetles still at it. Rather acrobatic aren't they?
