Moth Interference

June 11, 2012

Just as we were walking away from our room, I spotted this nice moth. I am now sitting on the bike, waiting for the photographer.

Ah, there she is.

    The cecropia is North America’s largest native moth. A beauty!

    Ah, yes, Hyalophora cecropia. Early in the summer, I was running a black light at our place in the Adirondacks to follow the appearance of the “giant silk moths’–the family of moths to which the cecropia moth belongs. Lunas and polyphemus moths had shown up before I had to take a break to come back to Ithaca. I hope cecropias will have arrive in the ‘Dacks by the time I get back.

    Thank goodness I still have your set of “Golden Nature Guildes.” I checked out the cecropia moth on page 87 of “Insects.” Beautiful. Please request more nature pictures from your photographer, please!
