The Sunday Challenge ~ground level~

The Sunday Challenge ~ground level~
I rescued this Polyphemus moth one morning, brought him into the house so the birds wouldn't get him. Released him when it was dark.
The wing span when open is between 4-5"..... one of the largest moths in Ontario.
Another in notes....with open wings

That's a pretty moth. The mark in the middle of the wing reminds me of the Comma and Question Mark butterfly. They both have marks similar to this.
