moth with eyes
I had been taking pictures of various insects all day. I got home and found this moth on my front porch step. Is this Mothra?…the species that battled Godzilla? Thanks,

Hi Curtis,
We can’t imagine what you would think if you saw a big Saturnid Moth like a Polyphemus or Cecropia. This is a female Io Moth, one of the smaller Saturnids.
