Heyy Bugman(: I live in Shelton Washington. My Mom saw this bug after coming home from the grocery store at around 11:00 am. We all think it looks like a moth, a very BIG moth at that. Hahaha. It tends to stick to everything it steps on. We would love to know what this is.(: My whole family loves your website! Thank you(:

Polyphemus Moth

Hi Ella,
This beauty is a Polyphemus Moth.  It has probably the greatest range of any North American Giant Silkmoth as it is found across the continental United States and Canada.
