Nice shot of a Polyphemus moth; and yes it is common, but you might see it often.

sorry, that should have been "but you might not see it often."
Who knew Moths could be so beautiful Carol!! This is a Giant Silkworm Moth Great shot
Carol, checking out the Saturniidae family of moths is an interesting read if you find time to do so.
Thanks for the info
