Probably the best known moths are the sphinx or hawk moths, some of which are so large they resemble a hummingbirds. The bodies of these moths are relatively stout and torpedo-shaped.

The moth was undeniably furry. It's body was far fatter than the butterfly she had caught at the end of summer and it's antennae were like miniature feathers. It's perky brown color ignited a memory of her father hammering cedar planks into the decking a few years back, before the accident. It had the same reddish hues and on the rear wing was a dark circle imitating an eye.
