Extending Happiness and A Polyphemus Moth

Last week, one morning while on my walk I came across this moth, dead on the road. I just felt very strongly about bringing it home, and cradled it carefully in my cupped hands all the way back. I posted a picture of it to my facebook news. One person from the Carolina's told me what it is, and said that if her 6 year old son saw it he would love it because he doesn't have one that size for his collection yet.  Sooooo,  I offered it to her and she accepted. Just heard from her...the moth arrived via the postal system today, and is in great shape. Yes, mailing it was a that we chose to take, and now a young boy is going to be quite happy!

I saw this amazing moth on your facebook page...I read up on it and it's very interesting. I love discovering new creatures in this world. I love the antennae!
