The largest moth in North America. Once hatched from its cocoon it only lives for 2 weeks because it cannot eat. Its purpose is reproduction. More info can be found at the following links: [link] [link]
That is fantastic! It looks like a silkworm moth. They're stunning creatures, compared to the little silvery caterpillars they morph from. These moths remind me of male tarantulas. Compared to the female spider, the male is hyperactive, barely eats or sleeps, is highly aggro and spends his spare time mating and looking for a mate.
Meh, I'm getting carried away... anyhoo! Well done!
It was fairly unresponsive. I was able to handle it gently without it flying away. I think the time of year it was made it pretty mellow. At least I hope that's what it was instead of illness or impending death Thanks for the comment
