I think the way that insects in nature can copy other animals for self-preservation quite astounding. An artist couldn't have done a better job creating an owl likeness on the back of the moth like mother nature could! And for a night-moth an owl is a wonderful choice!

Right so! After thinking it over -- this moth could have easily been photoshopped! Yaz, this Sweet Parakeet got suckered in. Congrats, Mr. Peepers!

I did take a peek at Google's owl face moth images, and was surprised to find both moths and butterflies with big eye markings on their wings. I titled this response "Luna Moth -- A Night Beauty with Wee Owl Eyes" because I had a delightful encounter with one of these large pale green moths one early morning, in the middle of town.


Facts: The Luna moth (Actias luna) is a large, beautiful and easily distinguishable member of the saturnid family found in Eastern North American forests. Adult moths have a wingspan ranging from 80 mm -115 mm, and have long sweeping hindwing tails.


Gorgeous! And this beautiful creature was definitely not photoshopped!

Ah .... how cool. I would love to have an encounter with a lovely Luna moth ... you were very fortunate to see one. I wonder if its possible for us to take a photo of one at night with a cell phone? Heck with the photo a video would be more awesome.



I don't see many moths out here ... just bats and rats, trash panda's squirrels and the odd stink kitty. I guess that's good enough for a city.

Living in a small vacation town in the Thousand Islands does give a different perspective to encounter wildlife than in a big metropolis, like Toronto.



While working in an independent bookstore, close to the shores of the St. Lawrence River, I often had the task of removing little birds, rodents, and even a little garter snake from the Bookstore. But I guess my best "bird memory" was when a young Canada goose was about to walk into the Bookstore, easy-as-you-please. I escorted the adolescent back out, before he made it past the front door -- but a shopkeeper in a store next to me, was in a bit of a frenzy -- "Don't let it in! Don't let it in!" XD


While working at a Tim Hortons, here in town, a number of customers going through the drive-thru were alarmed that a bat was resting at the back of the store, near the drive-thru menu sign. I grabbed a pair of disposable gloves, pulled them on quickly, and gently removed the sleepy bat from it's resting place. I deposited the little creature on a hedge-bush that separated the Tim Horton's lot from the next door hotel.


Why so many people are afraid of wildlife is beyond me! Often it is the fact that we are infringing on their natural habitats -- and not the other way around.

This is so true! People don't understand that we have taken away the natural homes that most wild animals have when we are in a city, I have raccoons that come to my house on a nightly basis. We leave water for them all year around because they need that as they are able to scavenge for food anywhere and are always successful getting it.



A neighbor had raccoons in her garage and had a pest control company trap them and remove them while they sealed up the holes in the garage. My neighbor was angry that the pest company wouldn't kill the raccoon family and even more angry when she saw the man release the raccoons after the garage repairs were done. She told the man to take the raccoons in his truck and move them somewhere else, like a city park.


I said to her the company can't take the raccoons and release them somewhere else because they just send the problems to some other neighborhood and the animals are in danger if they infringe on some other raccoon's territory.

It's not like the raccoons can get on a city bus and ask to be relocated to a countryside somewhere ... they need to live where they were born even if its in a city. We just need to safe guard our property's from them getting in and we need to let them live their lives in our midst.

I find it fascinating to see wild life in a large city ... it makes me happy to see them still thriving despite the obstacles we have made for these creatures to survive.
