Another backyard find, a Rustic Sphinx Moth. That is one big moth, I have seen smaller bats, smaller birds! Fat bugger too! I can see why they would be considered prime food, the body is the size of a beef jerky stick, girth-wise, and about as firm. I imagine the birds around here love seeing one of these sitting out.
Kids love it, dancing around singing songs to it for the brief time we kept it in a jar. Of course we let it go….. Hell, thats a days meal for some poor bird, bat or toad out there!
