Locked out

This rather handsome Hawkmoth cannot find a way into the bedroom.

Il a de sacrées antennes.
Ray: Oh? Je ne le savais pas, Martine.

It wishes to snuggle up with you
Ray: That would be fine by me, Chris, but Na might take to it with a broom.
Impressionnant ...
Ray: Merci, Claudine.
Love the moth's markings
Ray: Handsome, like most Hawkmoths, Koen, but hot as attractive as the Humingbird Hawkmoth that I often find in our garden.
This is probably just as well
Ray: Yes...a cat might think of it as a snack, Bill.
It's a very large one by the look of it.
Ray: I would guess about 4cm, nose to tail, Brian...about the normal size for Thai hawkmoths.
My cats would give it a go. I laugh at them chasing butterflies.
Ray: Only Smokey seems to hunt butterflies in the garden, Mary, but they will all do after moths.

That's a relief then. My black cat was a wonderful moth catcher.
Ray: Cats do seem to enjoy catching/eating moths, Alan.
