Going buggy

In honor of my friend Jean-Louis, and thanks to my friend Margie (she brought me the critter)... today a small study of a moth. I am not so good at subtle, and this beast was very subtle... but it's good exercise to at least try such things.

I've been down most of the day with a nasty headache.
We're having very odd, unsettled weather today and my sinuses feel as though they are going to explode. If it ain't one thing, it's another, eh?

Ooooohhh, very nice. I knew I took it to the right person! I don't know what kind of moth it is -- do you? Hope you're feeling better -- crazy weather lately.

Eyed hawk-moth... maybe?

Great job on capturing the softness of the wings. I only learned recently why moths are 'dusty.' Their scales fall off easily which allows them to simply bounce off spider webs instead of getting stuck. Neat innovation, eh?

Hmmm... well... I don't know what it is, either, ladies. I thought some sort of sphinx moth, and of course the "moth ID" page I found online had a ZILLION similar critters, but nothing just like this.

And thanks for the headache sympathies. :-) It lasted a couple of days... whenever we get this crazy stuff that ought to be rain but isn't. I was better today....
