– Lunar moth –
“A while back I was having a little lie in and my boy runs into the room shouting, " Dad, dad! Come quickly! It’s a huge green moth!” Springboarding out of bed I quickly grabbed my camera, still rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, and followed him outside. There on the path up to our house was a very large Lunar moth looking a little battered and clinging to concrete on a very gusty day. I was worried that a neighbor, or one of the local kids, would step on it, or that it would get blown into the road and get driven over by a car, so I decided to relocate it to our backyard. I tried to coax it onto a leaf, but it insisted on climbing onto my fingers, which is how I got the peekaboo shot featured in this post. After gently nudging it with the leaf I managed to get him onto a rock and safely out of harm’s way. I checked on him periodically throughout the rest of the morning, but by afternoon he’d flown off. Hopefully he managed to mate before he perished".

Worth a looksie
Thanks for posting that, Bob. Very interesting architecture there.
I’ve been to Midland, Michigan a few times lately to visit my Uncle in the hospital. He worked many years at Dow there in one of their office buildings downtown designed by Alden. He had a really nice book on his work that I really enjoyed reading and looking at when we visited. Now I’m definitely planning on a visit to his home and studio there.
One of my favorite architects…
Looks spectacular. I would love to see that.
