My Promethea cocoon hatched out today. Unfortunately for my moth-herding ambitions, this one is a male.
He was released in the back yard, and is currently trying very hard to look like a dead leaf on a pine tree.

Hi Bert,
Though the coloration of the Prometheus Moth is quite somber, the markings are nuanced and quite beautiful.  The Prometheus Moth is a beautiful species.  We do not receive as many images of the Prometheus Moth as we do of other Giant Silk Moths, and we are very thankful though were thoughtful enough to provide your gorgeous photographs for our archive.
