Giant Silk Moth!
When we opened the front door last Saturday, we were thrilled to find a HUGE moth sitting on our steps - he's lucky he's so big, or we would have accidently squashed him! The wingspan was just under 6-inches and we've ID'd the moth as a Polyphemus moth - or a giant silk moth.. quite a sight, eh? The bottom markings really look like eyes.. such clever creatures..
