    He is pretty. Good thing you're not a collector or he'd been stuck with a needle right now. [​IMG]

    Mac....wow, thanks...it was beautifull to see. We seem to have many of them around here, I guess due to the woods. Hmmm...either way....it was pretty!

    I agree with Mac, it's a polyphemus moth, a silk worm moth. It's partially covering its eye spots. Cool!
