Its a MOTH…
I think it is a cicada . they live a very short life in the open and I believe 7 years in the ground . They are the one’s you hear in the summer with a very loud buzz.
Picture with wings closed can not find a picture with them open .
It’s definitely a moth, maybe a Velvetbean Caterpiller Moth. A cicada has clear/transluscent wings almost like cellophane. See: http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species?l=4812
Ditto. Just a big, stinking, ugly, man eater moth!! I hope you didnt touch it or get too close because their wing dust is poision if inhaled.:shock: J/K:mrgreen:
Hi to all,
I don’t know what the’re called but they taste like chicken :mrgreen:
People from the South eat some weird stuff,… and you cant get any more south then Florida! You people are weird!! And I know because my parents live there,… hahahaha
By the way Gerry, does clearwater still have “Hot Dog Girls”?? Them some gooood hot dogs!!!
Weapon of Moth Destruction?
Hot Dog Girls???
Brian, go to your room:D
I thought it tasted like a mixture of Spotted Owl and Condor Gerry.
I saw this one in the freaks house in “Silence of the Lambs”.
Yeah Bruce, I use to live in Tampa in the early 90’s and the best part of going to clearwater beach were getting a dog from the “hot dog girls”. They were college girls (So they claimed, most likely strippers by night, hot dog vendors by day) selling hot dogs from a cart on the beach board walk with the smallest bikini and thongs you ever saw…:shock: They sold ALOT of hot dogs,… I know because Id go back at least five times! HA!! Perfect gig!
Those things lay eggs in your hair!
What do Joe, Hot dog girls ???
My better 1/2 tells me that the moth is an Imperial moth *Eacles imperialis.
Here is the web site for the moth that Mrs beamont told us about .
Thanks MRS you are a great detective .
Go to page two for pictures
yep, thats it
It was dying and missing a lot of its inner wing section which made its body more visible.
