Hi, this is a wonderful shot. Are the Atlas moths the biggest in the world?.

I've got about ten moths in my kitchen at the moment thank god they are not that big.

Thank goodness they are hopefully in captivity - I have enough of a problem with the RAF Hercules that buzz me on my visits to my daughter and son-in-law in Lyneham!
