moth found in Alabama
Can you tell me what this is? I took the picture in NW Alabama. Some kind of moth??

Hi Beth,
Your photo of a female Tulip Tree Silkmoth, Callosamia angulifera, is very beautiful. These moths range from New England to Florida and West to the Mississippi River. Here is a nice site that shows the life cycle of your moth. The moths are strongly attracted to lights.
