Giant Bugs

A big, shiny, green beetle and a butterfly (moth?). I thought the butterfly was fake because it was so huge, until I poked it and it walked and fluttered. I guess it was dying and couldn't fly away. =( Look at those thick legs! Reminds me of my old tarantula.

That's actually not a butterfly but a Polyphemus Moth. This past winter we got to over winter a cocoon and release one. They are beautiful!

THANK YOU for letting me know! I actually googled it and even posted a question on Yahoo trying to figure out what it was and couldn't seem to find any info.
