moth in my kitchen
Hi, I opened my back door to go on to my deck and this flying object flew into my hair. At first I thought it was a bat………and then I saw it land on my kitchen table. It just so happened that I had my digital camera sitting on the table. What kind of moth is this? I scooped it up in a large cup and let it fly away……………
Thanks in advance,

Hi Sandy,
This is a Polyphemus Moth, one of the Giant Silkworm or Saturnid Moths.
