Giant moths of Florida!

Here is a polyphemus moth from the Florida scrub. These moths live in a wide variety of habitats throughout North America. Unlike many butterflies and moths who have a specific host plant, the polyphemus moth can live on many trees including oak, willow, maple, and lots of fruit trees.
