Polyphemus

Polyphemus
We found her when we were walking this evening.
Her calling time is approximately 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
and again from 3:30 a.m. to dawn.


We placed her in the lavender on the deck.



She is a beautiful moth.



Rest well Polyphemus.

WOW, I didn't know they were out this early. What a great find. Maybe she will lay some eggs in your garden and you can find her larva.

Beautiful images of a beautiful moth. They are a bit magical coming out in the late hours.
