The photo above is of a Polyphemus Moth that we caught as a caterpillar. We put it in a box with a leafy twig, upon which it promptly built a fine cocoon. We kept it until it emerged as a beautiful moth. The large "eye" on each of its lower wings earned it it's name, after the cyclops in the Greek legend of Polyphemus.
