Rainy Day

no hike today… it’s FINALLY raining here. we’ve gone too long without. at last check i had a half-inch, and it’s still raining. so i thought i’d post some photos of a pair of mating cecropia moths from july 2nd. they were in my yard, near the back patio. with a wingspan of 5-6 inches, cecropias are the largest moth in connecticut. the adults’ only function is to reproduce, so they do not eat. beautiful!
