Front Door Treasures

While out on my front porch today, I saw a neat looking moth. My wife HATES moths, but I think they're neat. I marvel at the transformation that they make from the various grubs and such that we grow to hate (ever seen what a tomato worm turns into?).

My wife said that this moth looks like a jet fighter. I had to admit that he/she is very aerodynamic looking.

The other picture is of our Shisa dog. We have two of them in front of our door, as is the custom here in Okinawa. While we might get the occasional gecko in our house, the Shisa keep the evil spirits out!

As always, you can click on the photos for the full size versions. That moth is pretty neat looking up close.
