Polyphemus Moth - Antheraea polyphemus- female She has a 6 inch wingspan but sadly was worn out and dying.

I believe we have to give something back and I have promised her that her beauty will live on. Some may think that daft... but ...it is my way

Thankyou Janet.....

I am actually going to keep her. I have a Gulf Fritillary I found and she is in the wall... I think I will put Miss Peacock Eye with her.

Maravillosa especie. Su ciclo vital ha terminado, eso es así, ley de vida. Habrá dejado un buen numero de huevos, la próxima primavera todo empezara de nuevo.
