With this last lot of rain we have had an influx of moths. We occasionally get these but don’t know what they are called. Mick and I call them “Bird Moths”, because they are about the size of a small bird.
We had to use the standard measuring tool (Matchbox) to show just how big they are. This time there was quite a variation in size and we don’t usually get them as big as the top one. Their eyes glow red at night and we saw quite a few on our way into town for the Anzac Day dawn service.
Here is another one which had lovely details on its wings.
It is funny how they just appear for a few days at various times of the year and are then gone again.
Does anyone know what they are? They are too big to be Bogongs.
