Some days it pays to look up!

I was walking out to my shop this morning and something made me look up at the side of the building and look what I saw!!

At first I thought it was a weird lizard because I didn't have my glasses on. So I went and got my glasses and my camera and came back and was surprised to see it was some kind of giant moth and even more surprised to see there were 2! So I looked them up on the internet and it appears they are ceanothus silkmoths. Every day I am just awed by the beautiful things I see in my own yard in Oregon :)
