Before getting to our regularly scheduled post, what the heck is with pool cleaning? I don’t own a pool but my spam trap is filled daily with stuff from pool cleaners.
So my friend Anita and I were driving down a dirt road in Northern Maine last June when she called out to stop. Anita is an amazing spotter. Now, we were going fairly slow, but still to spot this from a moving vehicle is pretty amazing.Yeah, it looks gigantic, but it is only about an inch long. What was amazing besides her spotting abilities was that it is not covered in dirt road dust. Moths can be a great subject…many just sit there thinking, in a sense I guess, that if they won’t move they can’t be seen. This is not a case of good camouflage….but this is…I spotted that one while roaming around in Quabbin. But here is another of Anita’s finds, again from a vehicle on the same dirt road and probably 20 feet from the road.
