back to nature…

One of the first unexpected visitors we had at Lyric Springs when we bought the property was this guy. We marveled over his beauty (and size!) all morning. This is a cecropia moth and  we were quite lucky to have found him on hanging out on the side of the house. The odd thing about the adult cecropia moth is that they do not have mouth parts, meaning that they do not actually eat.  Their life span is only about 7-10 days. Live fast, die young.
