The above creature hitched a ride in the laundry basket when Daughter & Young Son brought in clothes off the line. Apparently, prior to this one flapping out (flapped like a bat it was so big) while I was folding clothes, the children had battled to get another one just like it out of the house. That one, too, managed to come in during the laundry-retrieving exercise.
We can’t tell whether this is a moth or a butterfly. Hubby did a little online research this morning to see if he could identify it, but had no luck. So, then, we leave this to you, Dear Reader. Can you identify this?
Btw, Hubby caught the one you see in the photo in a bucket and I took it outside to let it go.
