Polyphemus Moth
We love your site! Last year we discovered you when looking for a bug that bit my daughter down in Florida – it was a giant water bug. This time (in April) my daughter found a moth – I think it’s Polyphemus Moth. It is huge, at least 5″ or 5.5″ wingspan. The “eyes” on the wings are not holes, but clear circles (they reflect light). I think I have some better pictures, and I’d love to share them with you. You can use them. In one of them it sits on my daughter’s wrist, in the other, in a big coffee tin. I forgot to say: we are in Maryland, withing the Washington, D.C.Beltway.
