|It really is beautiful.|
I splurged a bit on this one. I found it in the collectibles section of the DI for $8. If you caught the Wicked Wants post or the Creepy Crawlers post, then you know I'm a big fan of bugs. They're just so gross and cool and misunderstood. As a kid I had a nice bug collection, but it eventually turned to dust because it wasn't preserved properly. It was kinda, sorta eatin' by critters.
Well, enough about me and more about this here moth. It is an "Attacus Atlas Moth (M)", pretty neat! My Dad pointed out that it is the largest moth in the world, with relation to wingspan. So, this is the closest thing to a real life Mothra. Cool!
