Silk Moths

I've been thinking about silk moths lately and how long it's been since I've seen one. About a week ago Jane McCarthy found a Cecropia Moth on her property and was super excited to tell me about it. Yesterday, Dottie Johnson emailed me saying she helped Ken Wood hatch and release his Promethea Moths a few nights ago. Pictured above, the last large silk moth I encountered was a Luna Moth (my favorite) at Nine Springs around 5 years ago. Have you seen a silk moth lately?
