How?

There was an absolutely GIANT moth in my place last night.

Like.  GIANT!

I mean, not as giant as some of the ones they get in other parts of the world (size of a plate type thing) but still... this is one of the biggest moths I've ever seen.

And I keep wondering how it got in!

I mean, I know my bug screens aren't tightly fitted... there are gaps, and yes, things get through those gaps but I feel like this moth was even too big for them!  Or it must have taken some really crazy maneuvering to get itself through the spaces.

Which begs the question... why?

Was it an accidental sort of thing or did it try really hard to get closer to... whatever... light?  Heat?  Food smell?  (I don't know, I'm making stuff up.)

I escorted it back outside with a glass and stiff piece of paper but man oh man that thing was big and it was terrifying as it was flapping about inside the glass.  CLINK CLINK CLINK.

Gah!
