Another large Silk Moth. Close to a 5 inch wingspan.
This moth was found in a shrubby areas of the prairies.
My first North American Silk Moth.
wow! Fantastic and congratulations!
Congrats Ian, your spotting is featured in the Project Noah blog http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/5644164...
WOW! This reminds me of a combo of female Promethea and Cecropia Moth. Very cool. Lovely! I don't think this is native to my area of PA.
Gorgeous! Amazing color and pattern! I hope I can spot this moth myself someday...
what a beautiful species
