Dear Lacey,
Your image of mating Cecropia Moths is really beautiful.  The male on the left has more feathery antennae to help him find a mate, and a slimmer body because the female is filled with eggs.

That’s fantastic! Thank you. Feel free to use the picture however you like. It was a beautiful sight.
