Better put the bug screen back on.
Yes! Moths have been swarming here, too.
The cheat’s insect screen is to turn push the Tilley preheat torch up to the hole in the bottom of the 182 or 171 glass. Moths get cooked before they make it past.
Then served with butter and a little salt & pepper.
So that's a moth in Australia eh? I can't imagine the mess they would make on the windscreen.
Glad we only have midgies, even though they eat us alive!
Moth? - that's a budgie, surely. I'd probably ***t myself if one of those came near me...
A muckle bug indeed!
Exactly what you said David! That thing is huge!
Wait till we get a photo of one of the really big ones
Big? This one is not big. It doesn't even have its fangs yet.
Give it a month or two then you'll see big.
I was just impressed how it was having a nice little sun bake.
It gets pretty darn hot there. !!
Known as the Rain Moth.
Giant moth brings the promise of rain to south-east SA
It’s a little fella .... the big ones we used to tie the wings down and put a lead on them and take them for a walk, as one would walk a dog ...... I kid you not
pictures or it didn't happen !
...and I'm the King of Old Siam - I kid ye not!
@David Shouksmith , So your majesty, are you looking for a governess, per chance?
Given what you said about your potential state of well being, you’d better not come to Australia and see one of these:
Oooh, I’ve just gone off my lunch!
Well that's Australia right off my bucket list...
yeh filthy nails not !?
Damn things are large enough to hunt for sport.
And you thought I was joking. A dozen makes a good meal.
This moth did not make it past Stu’s (@loco7lamp) preheater:
It’s been raining here, and still reasonably warm. There are a lot of these about in frenzied search of unprotected mantles:
Who needs window screen, chicken wire would keep that out! What size shotgun load do you use for those?
I would use a Pussy Cat - nice meal for him. These are very unpopular in some places down-under as I understand.
Around my place moths are loved much more than feral cats...
Haha - that is about what I reckoned!
My cat is not feral - very well behaved - all considered.
His place is to catch the spiders which hide under the lounge furniture - they come out when they think they stand a chance.
Chomp and gone...
Not a shotgun but looks pretty effective and fun.
