I saw one of those in Davenport last summer - freaked me out a little bit just by its sheer size...
They are beautiful, though. It's pretty rare to see one, because they don't fly in the daytime. I also found it cool that they don't eat as adults...they don't have a mouth or proboscis. They only live for two weeks.
Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
