Fine art illustration of a Cecropia Moth (Hyalophora cecropia.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Cecropia Moth was completed on 10.10.2011. I remember my brothers having found cocoons of these moths, bringing them home and hatching them in jars (I wouldn’t do this now, but back then no one really considered the moth’s survival unfortunately) I have only ever seen them rarely in the wild, but when I have it has been memorable. This marks the third, and perhaps final moth I will draw (unless you have a suggestion ?) The drawing is based on a photo by David Britton, who has a very cool website about the lifecycles of moths and butterflies.
