Silk Moth

This large moth was sitting on the porch when I got home.

When I came in the other night, I was met by a giant moth on my front porch. Few of these actually reach maturity. At over six inches as a caterpillar and bright green, it would make for an easy snack. They emerge in late spring and turn out to be a fairly large moth. The wingspan is easily eight inches. Really an amazing part of the natural world. The world is amazing when you slow down, have a sense of situational awareness, and open yourself up to experiencing nature as it presents itself to you.
