I did a little research and found out this moth is called the Polyphemus Moth. The Polyphemus Moth is one of our biggest moths, growing up to a 5 1/2 inch wingspan. It has brownish-yellow wings with a black and white, wavy line on each. It has a small, mostly yellow eyespot on each forewing (front wings), and larger blue, black, and yellow eyespots on the hindwings. Underneath, the moths' wings look like dead leaves.Polyphemus Moths are usually found in forests, but can also be seen in marshes and parks.
After the egg hatches, it becomes a big fat green caterpillar (Caterpillars are bright green with yellow stripes and red and silver spots. They also have a brown "v" on their rears. They grow up to 3 1/2 inches long.) which eats everything. Maybe not everything, but the list is long.
My thanks to the Fairfax County, Virginia Public Schools website for the information on the Polyphemus Moth. If you wish to see more on this HUGE moth, here is the link.
Till next time.
