My husband found this incredible creature's cocoon in our front yard months ago. Since I work with preschool children, this gave me an oportunity to allow the children to see what kind of creature would come out. They watched the cocoon for months! Finally on the morning of May 25th, we were surprised to see the beauty of this incredible moth. I brought it home and placed it on a piece of ornamental ironwork and started photographing. This is my final result. Enjoy!
