I'm Back!

We went on a mini vacation to Des Moines to visit my Aunt Sarah and her family. It was a fun trip! We went to the zoo, and also to my aunt's friend Karen's farm for lunch one day. More posts on these topics to follow, but right now I would like to focus on the enormous fat-bodied moth that Kira found on the deck this morning. It is so beautiful! I don't know what kind it is though, so if you know, write it in the comments. (Yeah yeah, I could google it, but I'm THAT lazy.)


  1. It kind of looks like a slug with wings...pretty but I wouldn't be caught dead touching it.

  2. Hyalophora cecropia(Lepidoptera:Saturniidae) I think.


I would love your comments.
