I nearly stepped on this large, spectacular moth in the woodshed this afternoon.

I thought he was perfectly monochrome until I cropped in the photo; click the image for big, and you'll see the blue on his legs and a little on his wings, too.

What is he?

Update: Giant Leopard Moth


  1. Wow. That's beautiful! I remember the first time I saw a Luna moth. I was absolutely enthralled.

  2. Very, very cool. Artistic, too.

  3. Wow, he's gorgeous! I'd love to have fabric with that pattern and the subtle blue.

  4. NEAT! I have never seen a moth such as this one.
