No, this is not a typo.
It’s a hitch hiker.
And he was HUGE!
Taken from outside
Taken from inside (and I swear he was smiling!)
Something different for post # 1111!
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Of course he was smiling – “Oh goody! I might get to go for a boat ride!” 🙂
Ha! Hope we didn’t take him too far away from home.
He won’t care …. he’s got wings and a good navigation system!
Nature’s wonderful isn’t it? I think especially of the swallows here and their forthcoming migration.
Nature certainly is amazing. Such a shame more people don’t slow down and appreciate such intricacies of creation.
I think it might be an old lady moth named because it looks like it’s in widows weeds
Thank you. She was pretty big and probably resting.
Thanks Geoff. I appreciate it!
Sorry to disagree brother, but I suspect one of the Red Underwings, there is a hint of red on the view from underneath. These are also pretty big moths.
Thank you for adding your comment. I must admit I had not seen a moth that big for years. My reference books are dated and I couldn’t find it in either. It was rather lovely though.
