Polyphemus Moth and Others

9 Comments

The Polyphemus moth is a very large and beautiful silk moth-named after Polyphemus, the giant cyclops in Greek mythology. Snapped this picture at work on Friday. It’s the second one I’ve seen this month at work.

The Beautiful Imperial Moth

And my favorite, The Lovely Luna Moth

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2018.

    My apologies for not visiting your blog much in recent weeks, Elizabeth. With two books to bring to fruition (now both released, thank God), my hands have been full. I hope you and your loved ones are well.
