Meet George. He is a Luna moth that has found safe harbor outside our front door. He's been there for almost 24 hours now, and hasn't moved. I'm not sure if he's dead or alive, and I'm afraid to find out. I don't want to touch him and disturb him, but if he's dead, we probably should move him.
Anyway, it's kind of humorous watching Newt, who is deathly afraid of bugs of any sort, navigate her way around George every morning on her way out the door to school. There is plenty of room for her to walk around, but she-who-is-scared-of-bugs thinks it is necessary to get as close to the damn thing as she can and scare herself half to death. God forbid George should move, I'm sure Newt would have a coronary.
Either way, George is welcome to stay as long as he wants, guarding our door from unwanted intruders, (and a very scared Newt).

Welcome George, glad you found our doorway a welcome respite from your busy life. Stay as long as you like.
