Hello all!

I have here a nice moth taken at 7:13pm on 8.18.12 in Baltimore County, Maryland. It matched my deck really well but I still saw it. I only had my phone with me so the picture is even worse than usual. I would estimate this at between 2 - 3 inches but take that with a grain of salt because I am bad at estimating. But it was not small (but hardly a Luna Moth either).

I have no idea what it is, but I will say it has excellent camouflage!
