That's One Big Caterpillar

While on Harsen's Island in St. Clair County, Michigan last week, Tony Troche found a thick, enoromous caterpillar. After a quick check on someone's fancyphone, we were able to determine that our caterpillar was that of a Cecropia Moth (Hyalophora cecropia).

A couple of years ago, Lindsay found a dead Cecropia Moth in our driveway. To see that post, which includes more information on the species, click here.
