Male Polyphemus Moth

Dear David,
This is a male Polyphemus Moth.  The Polyphemus Moth is even more impressive in its defense posture of exposing the large eyespots on its underwings, which might startle a predator into thinking it has disturbed a much larger creature capable of eating the predator.

Location: Danbury, Connecticut
