Here's a beautiful specimen - a Polyphemus Moth (Giant Silk Moth).
Just look at the "eyes" on handsome young man!
We found this guy one morning clinging to the wall of the school down the street. I had just dropped Emilie off at summer camp and he caught my attention as I was leaving. We missed it on our way into the school; walked right past him. He's beat up some, as you can see on his wings but regardless what a beauty!
