The neighbors were out looking up at their tree tonight, just looking and looking,
pointing and taking pictures with their phone camera.
I couldn't stand it any longer.... so I had to walk over to see what all the ruckus was about.
I grabbed my Sony A33, walked across the street to see what all the gazing was about.
It was photo worthy!
Home I went to research this giant moth, this is what I found out about this beauty....
"She" is one of the largest moths in North America, also referred to as a "Robin Moth".
Her wing span can be as large as 6 inches.
She looked to be about 3 inches long, about 2 inches wide.... quite a sight!!!
She will only live about 2 weeks, She does not eat and her purpose is to mate and lay eggs.
Excerpt from an internet article... "because a cecropia moth is colorful as well as large, when you do see one for the first time you will remember it forever!
