Antheraea polyphemus

Antheraea polyphemus
Henryetta, Okmulgee County, Oklahoma, USA
September 28, 2007
I believe that this is Antheraea polyphemus.
The dorsal is not very good, but I thought that the head shot with the little blue feet was interesting.
I had him in my hand but could not hold my hand out far enought to get all of him in the shot. He was found crawling in the grass. Was he looking for a place to pupate?
