gorgeous moth


Special insect friend as promised! My roommate found this gorgeous Polyphemus moth out in the dorm open hair hallway. She came in and was like, “Erin, there’s a big monster out there.” I thought she meant there was a giant cockroach or something so I was like, “Oh I’ll go remove it.” But it turned out to be a giant silk moth :). I brought the moth in my room for a few minutes while I started a load of laundry so no one would step on it while I was gone. I released the moth in the campus nature preserve so hopefully it found a mate :).
