Giant Silkmoth: Pseudodirphia menander

Dear H. Appels,
We are posting your image of a Giant Silkmoth,
Pseudodirphia menander, which appears to have recently emerged from the pupa and its wings have not yet fully expanded.  We located images of the moth on Discover Life, and there is also an image on BioLib.  Your other images are of a Cicada nymph and a Fishing Spider.
