cool. one night we were playing wiffle ball at 10 pm and my dad set up a huge light and it attracted a cecropia moth, the biggest moth in north america, and i kept it over night because i wanted to get pics in the morning, and it layed eggs in the container so i had to research them and go throught the trouble of wetting them and sticking to the under side of leaves.

"it puts the lotion in the basket, or it gets the hose again" for those of you who dont know; that is a famous quoet from the movie silence of the lambs which featured these insects!
