Hello all! I just wanted to share a picture of a moth that my boyfriend found while he was on a job site (he's a union painter). He didn't know if it was a butterfly or a moth, so he brought it home and we did some research. Turns out it's the largest moth in the North America, a giant silkworm moth called Cecropia, with a wingspan of 6 inches. It's so beautiful!! Just wanted to share. The wings look a bit blurry cuz they were fluttering a bit.
