                          A couple of years back we went to Greece on holiday and stayed in a lovely hotel overlooking the sea. One evening we were eating our evening meal in the outside restaurant when suddenly a giant moth landed on one of the tables. I have never seen people move so fast.

                          I think it looked similar to this
