I wasn't going to post again until tomorrow, but checked out sue Kaufman's blog- great garden photos, and remembered my picture of this moth, an Antheraea Polyphemus. I found this guy a while back in my germination chamber in my greenhouse. I ran the lights at night- more heat needed then, and he or she was attracted to them. The lights have been off a while, since I moved things outdoors to the gardens.
I was able to pick it up and carefully place it on a piece of paper for photos. You can check out Sue K's pic on her blog. Link below. This one had lost a lot of the powder from his wings, while flapping over my tomato plants that were not too far below the light bulbs. Sue's didn't beat itself up this bad. I don't usually "do" browns, but I think he may end up in a quilt, somehow. I wish the furry body details showed up better in photos- looked so silky soft.
Sue K has more info about this pretty cool looking creature.
