My name is Aaron and I live in the dark rolling hills of the Driftless region in Southwestern Wisconsin with my gorgeous wife and three absolutely wonderful daughters. My love and fascination of moths and butterflies began one day when I came across some creepy cocoons hanging on some curly willow branches. I work at a large flower farm where these trees were about to be cut and the cocoons destroyed so I felt I had to save them, not knowing what they were I set them in my car somewhere and eventually forgot about them. A week or so later I was driving down the street when something huge and soft began flapping around the car and in my face. I might have screamed a little bit but when I saw it was a beautiful moth, I couldnt believe it!!! What I found out later after some research was that I had the largest silk moth in North America, a Cecropia and I was hooked.
Every Spring and Summer on the flower farm I noticed…
