Giant Moth

We've been busy putting together our tutorial for how we turned our IKEA KURA bed into a bunk over trundle. I'm hoping to get the how-to guide posted this weekend.

In the meantime, here is a picture of one of the crazy-huge moths we've been seeing all summer. We've only ever seen one once the whole time we've been living here until this year when there have been a number of them hanging around. Chris looked them up and says they are a species called the polyphemus moth, and they are widespread throughout North America. For whatever reason, they don't spend a lot of time around our corner of the woods, but they have been hanging out on our doorstep frequently this summer.

Do you have these giant moths where you live?
