Polyphemus Moth

One night Jeff andĀ IĀ were harvesting stuff from our garden when we saw this HUGE moth!Ā Ā  He was on our banana peppers, just sitting there.Ā  I went to get my camera and he was still in the exact same spot!Ā  After about 50 pictures, I picked it up, and allĀ he did was flutter a bit he didn’t seem very shy at all! Then he flew away looking like a little bird!Ā  I looked him up on the web and found out he is a Polyphemus moth.Ā  If you are wondering why I keep calling him a he it’s becauseĀ heĀ hasĀ feathered antenna and that means he is a male. Here are the pictures.
