Was on our back deck, was like woah
Cool its a Polyphemus Moth :
Polyphemus Moth - Antheraea polyphemus
Just a giant silk moth then I guess. Says they're most common in Illinois & Canada, never seen one before here though. Could probably mistake it for a bat at night.
How did you managed to place a coin beside it without startling it?!

Beat me to it. I thought at first it might have been a type of Emperor Moth, which is also one of the Saturniidae. Very similar looking. But no, you're right.
I saw a huge ass moth like that the other day at work (Pennsylvania, but people drive in from all over, could have been brought in by one of them?)
I don't mean to hijack the thread or anything, but since we're on the topic of giant creepy-crawlies, here's a huge slug that's been living around my house. We call him "Super Slug".
Sorry Couldn't resist, That month's kinda cool looking.
I would shit myself if that flew around my room.
I knew I shoulden't have sold my giant atomic dinosaur.
Ah, beat me too it.
That's the biggest moth I've ever seen, if I saw one I'd be like woah.
Well, it's definitely big.
But, it doesn't hold a candle to the Atlas moth:

Its wings look like they're smiling, sinisterly. XD
You take a picture of the moth and not the tiny Japanese women singing to it?
I lost my appetite thanks to your link
