Oh wow! I have no idea but what are you growing near your porch?Enjoy your holiday.
Just the usual. Holly, Mahonia and basic bushes. Had to work. Hope yours was good.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Lest we forget.Helen
It's a Polyphemus moth.
