Take your time
Aside from the occasional sounds of fireworks, it was a quiet day in the park on July 4th - a great day for a walk. While rounding a bend on the unpaved path I spied this beauty, resting in the daytime on the underside of a fern. The Cecropia moth is one of the largest moths in North America. As I got closer to take this photo the moth began to move its wings, apparently trying to scare me off with the movement of it's 'eye spots'. I got a couple of frames and then backed away quietly, leaving the moth to it's rest.
So, walk and look around the next time you are visiting the Nature Center - there is a lot to see.
