You were right, Robbiel, it is a polyphemus moth. I'm on Vancouver Is. That web site was helpful cedanse, thanks to both of you for your info.
I think this is it.
thanks for (both) puzzles (one jigsaw, one identification)
Hi roseh, might have it. Polyphemus moth, rich brown with pink and light brown fringes. Yellow spots on four wings circled by black and blue. Like silk moths, they live only for a week or two to mate and literally starve themselves to death. Picture looks very much like yours. Habitat sounds like ontario from south to James Bay. Hope this helps.
It was, Robbiel, my surprise for the summer, would like to know what kind it is.
Sure is a beautiful moth roseh.
