Polyphemus Moth

I found this enormous polyphemus moth hanging out inside the chicken coop. This has to be the biggest insect I've ever seen in Michigan (although this doesn't even come close to some of the crazy insects I saw during my expeditions in Panama)

The antennae are very cool. They look so soft, I wanted to pet them.

  1. Michigan has some wild insects. We had a HUGE kind of beetle/I don't know what on the deck the other day. I'm usually not squeemish about bugs but I couldn't even make myself get NEAR that ugly thing!
