If you like bugs, you might find this over-sized moth a benign presence. If you don’t, well…I suppose you could bring out the extra large fly swatter.
Mothra, a giant moth-like creature, was the nemesis of Godzilla in the old Japanese sci-fi movies. Remember those? Did you ever spend a rainy Saturday afternoon watching old sci-fi flicks?
I doubt this little guy, seen here on my porch, could stand up to Godzilla, but I found him rather beautiful. I would say his wingspan was just under three inches.
