Gorgeous Cecropia Moth
Christine Morey from Annabelle’s Pet Care sent this photo of a newly emerged Cecropia Moth. This is the second year in a row that she has found a Cecropia Moth cocoon on her hydrangea bush. The hydrangea is sited below her birch tree, which is one of the caterpillar’s food plant. The Cecropia Moth is the largest North American native moth, with a wing span of six inches! Gorgeous Christine–thank you so much for sharing!!!
