This beautiful specimen was photographed at the folks’ cottage last summer. With a wingspan of close to 6" this was a truly impressive moth to observe and photograph.

Photographed north of Ottawa, Canada in Val-des-monts (lac Bataille), with a Canon 40D + 100-400L lens, aperture priority, evaluative metering, 1/200s., f/6.3, ISO 500, +0.7 EC.
