If you mention moths to the average person, they probably think of small, uninteresting, white or gray insects that fly around at night. There are plenty of those, of course, but there are also some large, spectacular creatures that appear after the sun goes down. Among the most amazing are the Sphinx moths. On many summer nights I leave the porch light on at our home in northern Minnesota. This Blinded Sphinx moth was one of the many moths attracted to the light. I coaxed it onto a piece of wood to get this photo.
