Submitted by: LisaKoe
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This was the 1st time I've ever seen an Imperial Moth. We were able to tell it was a male due to his "fuzzy" antenna. He was out back on my back porch by the light. He was pretty still and only really moved when he felt my back door open and close.
