Two Saturniidae Antheraea Polyphemus Moths

2015 eclosures

Two perfect, newly eclosed female moths

Following a lot of rain, a total of three female poly-moths eclosed from their cocoons today. They are perfect and stunning, as always. Their appearances never cease to delight me. It’s such a brief time when these wondrous moths escape their cocoons and begin their life cycle all over again. At present, they are outside in a cage, calling for males to come find them. I’m hoping to witness that amazing event as well.
