Polyphemus Moth
My grandmother found this in her backyard near Chardon, Ohio. Looking through your site I found that it is a Polyphemus Moth. From the ruler I put next to it it is 5-6 inches across. It’s wings were not perfectly flat when I took this. My kids (5 & 3 years old) went wild at the "huge bug"… they enjoy your site immensely!
