about 2 hours ago at work i came across a white lined sphinx moth sitting on the floor of the garage. it was probably staying away from the 30c that was outside at the time. i picked it up and it just sat on my finger never moving an inch for 20 minutes and i probably could've held him for an hour as he was so calm and relaxed/lazy lol.i got a very good look at him and found out the moths can look so cute, the moth was just a fuzz ball.
wings rested he was 1 1/4 inches wingspan and body length. i was plannig to bring him home in a container so i can take some pictures of him on my hand (then release) but in the process he decided i was annoying him too muchi ie humming his wings and flew off. ive never had a flying insect that large just calmly sitting on my fingers. i never had much interest in moths before aside from the pests moths everyone hates. this moth doesn't have fabrics much on the menu. it prefers than trees, fruits veggies then moves onto nectar as an adult.
does anyone else find moths or any other insect facinating/cute? i like the stick insects, mantis, butterflies among others but the moths are prefeered over butterflies.
