Inspiration - "Polyphemus Moth"

Greetings from Providence, Rhode Island!

Over at my cousin's house, we found the craziest moth we've ever seen. My pet-store extraordinaire cousin immediately caught it and identified it. It's the rare Polyphemus Moth. (We let it go after the photoshoot and geeking out over it.)

Behold the beauty! Note that the moth is the size of my cousin's hand.

  2. Isn't she gorgeous? (You can tell by antennae that it's a she.) Of course! She belongs outside--only lives for a week in the moth form.
