Spottings

Owl moth favorited by Ornithoptera80 Shimoga, Karnataka, India 26 minutes ago

Moths in the genus Caligo are commonly called owl owl moths, after their huge eyespots, which resemble owls' eyes. Owl moths are very large, 65–200 mm (2.6–7.9 in), and fly only a few metres at a time, so avian predators have little difficulty in following them to their settling place. However, the butterflies preferentially fly in dusk, when few avian predators are around. The Latin name may possibly refer to their active periods. Some owl moths form leks in mating behavior.

Lacewing eggs spotted by Saturniidae27 Lat: 32.89 Lon: -97.28 43 minutes ago

These eggs were laid on a dead piece of grass, which was stuck in a honeysuckle vine. The eggs are at the end of the string like structure attached to the grass. The eggs are translucent, but are white when light is shined on it. This is most likely the eggs of some species of green lacewing, which are very common around here.
