Giant Cecropia Moth
by Lucy Elmore (Lucy) FIRST POTD!
Olympus C-2100UZ
Crossville, Tennessee
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
Why I never leave my camera at home. I spotted this giant moth (wingspan about 5-6 inches) on a pillar outside of the local Staples. It must be newly hatched to stay there so long. I took many shots of its beautiful markings.

Background colour really compliments this beauty, Lucy. Didya hit the Staples "easy" button to have this thing magically appear? (;-) Seriously, congrats on #1!

Nice catch with the UZI. It always seems you find the unique nature shots amidst commercial development.

I knew this close-up was a good candidate for a POTD as I saw it in the Oly forum, Lucy. Background color and texture are well-matched to the moth. Big congratulations on your first POTD!
