Sitting at mama's, late at night, playing cards, yes we had drank a coupla glasses of wine... Suddenly thud thud thud, we thought a >bat< was beating against the window outside. A moth the size of a small bird was trying desperately to get at our wine, I mean THE LIGHT! He was huge, too huge, and lest you think I exaggerate (which I sometimes do), compare him to the camera; he flung himself at the window repeatedly before tiring and resting, allowing me to take some quick photos. Look at those eyes!!! We had to open another bottle, mama was so shook up ;o) This is why I'm a city girl, they grow them too big up on the mountain for Stephie.

Perhaps he was after sampling some wine at a neighbours house.. and crashed on the way home Stephie,... drinking and driving.. bad idea... he is BIG.

Barbara, it was truly unbelievable the size of this guy, i could never tell this story if i couldn't back it up for sure, haha.

thank you sheasoru68, he came to the wrong window for more wine, we wasn't about to share right. he probably would have finished our bottle and we needed it ;o)
