Speaking of moths, I had an absolutely HUGE caterpillar crawl across our 
garage floor the other day. It was lime green and could pull it's head back into 
it's body, sort of like a turtle. I identified it in the  "National Audubon 
Society's Insects and Spiders" as the Luna caterpillar. "This beautiful moth is 
only found in North America. It is now considered an endangered species because 
many have been killed by polluntants and pesticides".
I quickly set it out in the garden. What a nice surprise.
