Moth results

Have had some interesting guesses, but most of you were right. These are all photos I took this morning. What an exciting day! I had never seen a Cecropia moth in the wild before. I had seen a Luna moth, but had never captured one. I do have a Polyphemus moth in my collection, caught when I was a preteen - but I had never seen one in the wild since then - until today.

Moth #1: Polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus)
(Guess by: Ted C. MacRae)

Moth #2: Cecropia moth (Hyalophora cecropia)
(Guess by: Abitabite)

Moth #3: Luna moth (Actias luna)
(Guess by: shoelessjane, Ted C. MacRae, Robert Pace)

Yay - 2 points for me. I win the universe!

I can't believe I missed the 2nd one - I've even reared that species.
