Found this thing in my well pit this evening, thought it was Luna moth but its colors arent exact, or the big moth with 2 eyes on its wings, don't know mame. This thing is huge. I bet it's as big around as my thumb and minimum of 6" or longer. The standing back pic shows the well pit, that gray pipe is 1 1/2 for a reference.

You all know that's what I'd do! Check out Google, find out what it eats, and have fun watching it develop.

That's wrong, because it's no JOHN DEERE GREEN. Looks like the cat is wearing sunglasses - on his buttom...
