Violet-green swallow commented on by Brian38 Auburn, Washington, United States 21 minutes ago

Thank you Sukanya. We get to enjoy them here in the PNW in the spring and summer during their breeding season. Even then they aren't very common.

Violet-green swallow favorited by SukanyaDatta Auburn, Washington, United States 52 minutes ago

The male has a vivid green cap, back, and partial wings as well as hints of purple on the nape, rump, and upper tail. I was fortunate to catch this one resting before taking off again on its relentless search for flying insects.

It is a medium sized moth in the family (Saturniidae), and in the genus Syssphinx. The moth is medium to large sized, (70-90 mm.). The moth has rounded orange mottled forewings with two white dots, and one faint black line on both wings. It also has white wing edges on both of the forewings. The hindwings are bright red near the inner joint area, and fades away to a light red while reaching the tornus area. The moth was a female, and has small yellow feathery antennae. The thorax and abdomen are light orange with the thorax having two black lines running down each side.
