giant silk moth This cocoon was on a linden (basswood) tree.
I took it off and hung it in my garage..This is the result..I did free it, of course. I will keep the cocoon for my rec room. I have hornet’s nests, various insects, snake skins, turtle shells, etc. here. Just something I do.
Thank you for sending in your marvelous image of a Polyphemus Moth.
