Thank you so much Mark. This was huge for me this is the first that I have seen here in CR. The first one posted for CR too! I was so excited when I walked outside to shoot at 2 a.m. and saw this guy. It looked like there were mostly geometrid moths, of which, there are millions right now.
Fabulous moth Larry. Like a big plush toy. You guys with your moths - envy from a cold dark winter. Keep up the good work... :-)
Thanks Jakubko! Same to you buddy!!!
Fantastic! Happy Moth Week, Larry!
