Polyphemus Moth

Yesterday, while the kids were clearing a brushy/grassy area in the yard, Angel came across this Polyphemus Moth.

This morning we used our Pocket Naturalist Guide on Butterflies & Moths to identify it.  From there, we were able to Google search the name and come up with a variety of information about this particular species.  I really appreciate these guides for a quick reference.  I highly recommend them for your nature study :)
