What a Special Treat!

Hyalophora Cecropia

 Emma was out playing with her loopsy dollys in the yard this evening and had a visitor come calling... I left the picture huge so if you click on it you can see how furry this wonderful creature is!  The fur on his body is so thick~ moths usually give me the heebie geebies, but he was so huge he didn't bother me

 Now! Wow! Can you believe how big he is? He..or she, (I don't know how to tell and didn't feel comfortable asking ) is a Cecropia moth~ a kind of silk moth~ the biggest in all of North America! What a special gift to have a visit from, we just had to share  :)
