This is a giant Cecropia moth. This giant silk moth is North America’s largest native moth. These beautiful creatures only live about two weeks. My son said it was the softest thing he had ever felt. He was found on the road near Bogus Basin ski resort in Boise Idaho and flew away shortly afterward.

I found this small white moth desperately trying to blend in at the gas station. I couldn't help getting out my photo equipment to take a picture. I'm sure there were many people wondering if I lost my mind, especially when I took out my 300 mm macro lens. In the end, my favorite picture was taken with the iPhone.
