Hello! We are currently at Assateague in our ‘beach house’. It’s not exactly on the beach, but it’s close and quaint, so I guess it fits the title. 🙂
We arrived here Monday night, so we didn’t do much the first day. About a half an hour before we got here, there was a big storm and we pulled over into a parking lot to wait it out a bit. That’s about as exciting as the first day of vacation got. 😛
One night Jeff and I were harvesting stuff from our garden when we saw this HUGE moth! He was on our banana peppers, just sitting there. I went to get my camera and he was still in the exact same spot! After about 50 pictures, I picked it up, and all he did was flutter a bit he didn’t seem very shy at all! Then he flew away looking like a little bird! I looked him up on the web and found out he is a Polyphemus moth. If you are wondering why I keep calling him a he it’s because he has feathered antenna and that means he is a male. Here are the pictures.
