    Well, just look at the legs on this thing! :))

    Found early one morning on a light pole. Probably warming up. Some who
    were there taking pictures remarked on how it looked like a big spider!
    :)

    It was pretty huge. Should've had something to measure it with at the
    time, but didn't think of it. :(

    Btw, taken with a cellphone, so quality not the greatest.

    Moth?:

    Alex,
    If this web site & gallery is owned by somebody you know, he should be
    reminded that mac.com sites & web galleries will cease to function on
    the mac.com or me.com severs on June 30. This is part of Apple's
    transition to iCloud.

    He can move the files to Dropbox where it will be presented in the same
    way, or he can move to a host server.

    I have moved all of my image files and web galleries off of iDisk and
    the mac.com servers.
