Hitchhiker

Colin picked up up a hitchhiker in the grocery store parking lot this morning. After much research this beast (that's a nearly 3 inch wingspread!) turns out to be a Royal Walnut Moth...the Royal Walnuts of Georgia to be sure. He/She? is free now somewhere in my backyard. Click on the photo for a closeup!

Goodness Deb, as I take another look at this 'critter' my stomach churns, the same feeling as being on a high ledge and looking down.
Sure don't like them, but the colors are beautiful!!
Yes, i am inspired!
