Wildlife: Moth

While cleaning a bench on our deck, I discovered a large, puffy cocoon with a beautiful moth hanging onto it. I ran for my camera and scooted under the bench on my back. This photo was snapped after it's wings were fully opened. It was one of those aha moments.

You have a beautiful Cecropia Moth. It's the largest moth in N. America and spins a cocoon of silk. By the large fluffy antenna, it looks like it's a male. Females have narrower antennae. Again, beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
