Multitasking Moth

Jim Gunn, environmental science instructor here at The Tutorial Center had brought in a tree branch that contained a brown silk cocoon to help students (and staff!) learn about nature. The Cecropia moth, the largest native moth in North America, decided to eclose right before our digital photography class this morning and provided a rare opportunity for ultra close up photography of a very beautiful insect. The branch was then taken outside where it will finish plumping its wings and eventually fly off.

    It was so exciting to see this moth and have it as an exciting subject for our closeup photography! Maybe next we should try and have, oh, I don’t know, a live Panda birth for the DSLR students to practice on? 😉
