Nice macros. Those big moths are interesting. I had one on my window last year. Thanks for sharing.

That moth looks like one huge autumn leaf stuck to the screen.
Amazing creature!

It's still hanging out here on my screen. I've never seen one like it either.

We're calling it "Vecna".

Looks like the Blinded Sphinx Moth, Paonius excaecatus. Sphinx moths are told mainly from the topside of their hindwings which usually have a prominent eyespot with a central spot of a different color. The Blinded Sphinx does not have a second central spot thus the "Blinded" term. We can't see the hindwing in this photo since the forewings are covering them. Great photo!
