I shot this with a 400 prime lens as I did not have a smaller lens with me.  The Moth was laying in the early morning grass and the weather was pretty cold.
ISO 3200; f/5.6; 1/1250

Amazing giant moth! I only saw them in the butterfly house. It should be a great experience to see one in the nature.
