Cecropia Moth. - Hyalophora cecropia
Pickens County, Georgia, USA
May 3, 2009
Size: wingspan approx. 15.5 cm.
Found at porch light (my lucky night, I guess).
Brought it in for photo shoot and released back outside, where she proceeded to lay 13 eggs by back door.
She laid 6 eggs in one spot and 7 a couple of feet away.
She hung out by the porch light for a few hours and then disappeared, perhaps to lay more eggs elsewhere.
