Our Weekend Find

So we had some lovely weather this weekend and the entire family spent a lot of time playing & working outdoors. (this means mom & dad did a lot of work and baby boys and dogs played!) While we were having one of our outdoor adventures Miss Lilly spotted this strange creature over by some of our flower pots.

Our Weekend Finds

Our first look at our new friend…

Obviously the rest of the family had to come and take a closer look, this resulted in me telling dad to keep Riley away until we know what it is, both the girls running away everytime it flicked its wings and us trying to get some pictures before it flew away!!

My first close-up…still couldn’t tell if it was a butterfly or a moth..

I was able to get one more good picture in before all of the commotion scared our friend away…

Definitely larger than it appeared at first glance!!

The girls diligently tried to find it again by going around and searching all of the flowers around the house (some of them were due for a good trampling anyway!) but to no avail! Our winged friend was gone and we are left with the mystery of trying to find out whether it was a butterfly or a moth. What do you think it was? Any insights would be appreciated!!
