Giant moth near my house.

Found this giant moth near my house walking back from dropping off a letter. Looks dead, but still very formidable. Wing span is easily 17cm.

  2. Yeah, it looks pretty cool -- I have never seen one in real life before.

  4. Wow He is beautiful! I found one of these one day on a sidewalk. I live in Virginia. I since then found out they are nocturnal and that is the reason why he wouldnt fly. I dont even know what he was doing out of the trees.
