Polyphemus Moth Outbreak, March 25 '10, Utley

This big crisp Polyphemus Moth was one of three that I found fluttering around the front porch light yesterday evening. All 3 were fresh males suggesting a female(s) was likely nearby. Perhaps they were merely distracted by the light which I turned off just after taking this photo.

I will be away from Utley for some time in south Texas so unfortunately will not be able to do any follow up.
