Giant Silk Moths in our neighbourhood

In the early spring we noticed a large brown cocoon on the bottom of our lamp post. We identified it as a giant silk moth (Cecropia) so we installed a temporary cage so we could see it emerge.

We left it in the cage overnight so the local children could see it and will be letting it go later today (apparently it is best to release them in the late evening). Meanwhile overnight, a male found the female (we saw her ejecting a stream of pheromones yesterday) and this morning they are mating

These are the largest native moths in North America. Beautiful creatures.

More on the Giant Silk Moth from photos above. Thank you again to Stan & Gill!
