mating Polyphemus Moths
Hello all. It’s Spring in North Carolina, and I just found these rascals enjoying the mild weather beneath my garden hose box. I’m pleased and relieved that I didn’t find the copperhead snake that I’d expected when I originally spotted the edge of one wing beneath the box. Love is in the air, and within 1 inch of the ground. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for sending such a gorgeous image of mating Polyphemus Moths. “Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass,” at least there will be a new generation of Polyphemus Moths thanks to this romp on the lawn.
