Manduca sexta by tindomul1of9, on Flickr

This one is quite a surprise find for a bitterly cold February night. As it turns out this one came from a culture of tomato horn worms that I purchased so my chubby frogs could eat them. This female survived, metamorphosed and surprised me last night trying to get out of the frog enclosure.
The funny thing is that I has spent the day looking through pics of moths on the internet wishing for spring to hurry up and arrive so I could go mothing.

If you enjoy moth pics, check out Jim des Rivieres work (if you haven't seen it already): http://moths.ca

I saw his exhibit at AMNH when I was there for Frog Day a couple of years ago. They are even more amazing when viewed in person; the amount of detail is astonishing!

The moth images were hanging in the hallway between the garage and the admission desk. I drove so they were the first thing that I saw. They were one of the coolest things that I saw that day!

I've never taken a car to the AMNH, I never realized they had a garage.
