Sepia Moth

I found this large moth floating in our pool. I think it's a polyphemus moth whose color faded while floating in the water. I rendered it in sepia for Sepia Saturday.

I should also show it in the original color in case a moth-expert wants to check my identification. I'll share this version with Saturday Critters.


  1. Still very beautiful and very big.

    Happy Week to you,

    All the best Jan
