Male Cecropia Moth mating with a female Promethea Silkmoth. Very rare in nature. Usually the male flies off to find a moth of the same kind. This female went to the male that I found in the trees. No one seems to be able to explain this very rare mating event. I have to send this photo to professional entomologist to get an explanation. The mating event will probably not produce eggs in a female unfortunately. That would be too cool. (The sun didn't cooperate) I couldn't get a great photo, but wanted to show you something very unique.
