Blinded by the lights

I saved a hawk moth last night. When I turned on the light in the kitchen she suddenly flew up, angered by the bright light. I turned it off immediately, of course. I found her against one of the cabinet doors and I managed to catch her with a glass. I released her in the dark hallway, not wanting to put her outside in the cold. This morning I did not see her, she is likely hiding somewhere. My guess is that she emerged from her winter hibernation. What a fright it must have been!
