This big and beautiful polyphemus moth was fluttering around the parking lot at work on Friday. Of course I had to take his portrait. More detailed shots of this lovely fellow are below.
A parabolic mirror that rests on one of our sills can cast a very bright spotlight through the window at night when the room light is on. The spot is a magnet for nocturnal insects. This very fuzzly moth parked himself right in the middle earlier this week.
