Brooke pointed out a large moth, resting near his cocoon on a madrone. Almost stationary, not obviously spooked by a camera. I took many photos of this fantastic creature. Also, unknown insects on smooth mule ears, a lizard, and more. I include some landscape images here; some help set the context for the moth.
