It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

I don't know why but I have always been afraid of moths and never liked them.

Scary!

Gorgeous! We had a mothzilla here last summer. It was so big that we thought at first that it was a bat! Turned out to be a giant silk moth.
