Ontario largest moth - the Cecropia

The beast of moths known formally as Hyalophoa cecropia and informally as holy crap; that is a big moth tries to lift a heavy steel structure. Unfortunately the structure was bolted and the moth had to try several times before he was successful. After he got up in the air I managed to rope and saddle him, then I flew home. With a wing span of 160mm their wings have eyespots and the body has red stripes.
