Mixed Messages from Starbucks, originally uploaded by andycarvin.

While having coffee at a Starbucks with a couple of NPR colleagues today, one of them noticed that the cardboard jacket holding our cups was from Seattle’s Best. We swear we didn’t stage this.

I’m sure there’s a lesson in it, particularly in the midst of the financial meltdown, but I’m not sure what it is. What do you think? -andy

Atlas Moth, originally uploaded by andycarvin.

The Atlas moth (Attacus atlas) is one of the largest moths in the world. This one, which I photographed at the Brookside Gardens Butterfly Pavilion in Wheaton, Maryland, has a wingspan of approximately 10 inches. Each wing was just a little larger than my entire hand.

This was as close as I could get to the moth without disturbing it. If my hand had been adjacent to it, each wing would have been a little bit larger than my hand. It’s the largest type of moth in the world.
