Spring : Spring 13 : Farmboy Moth

An unusual find. I was climbing the stairs leading to Farmboy's when I spotted what I thought was a rag flapping in the wind while snagged to the wooden railing. I got closer and realized it was a very large moth hanging on for dear life in the strong wind. Shit, I didn't have my camera. I came back several hours later to find it still hanging on. I praise the Dogs and thanked the moth for its tenacity. Update: Hyalophora cecropia

Okay, sorry, I am going backwards through the photos. This photo does give me more intel! I think Dr. Cox is correct, it is a Hyalophora cecropia.
