Bug of the Month: July 2008 – Cecropia Moths

Bug Love
Can you tell my what kind of moth this is? Thanks From Lenox Michigan

Hi Donna,
What a beautiful image of mating Cecropia Moths. It is coming our way at the perfect time to designate it as the Bug of the Month for July 2008. We have received numerous images of Cecropia Moths this year, but none as lovely as yours. Cecropia Moths are Giant Silk Moths and they do not eat as adults. Their sole task is to mate and reproduce.
