Mrs. Bowman shot this video as she got out of her car at King’s Ridge on Tuesday morning. Click here to watch the video. She thought they were bats, but discovered they were actually moths. When I went outside as the sun rose, only one remained visible. He flew away after I took his picture. Look at the large spots on their wings that look like owl eyes. It is a great defense mechanism to scare away predators!

I did some research on these silk moths. Click here.
