White fuzzy moth. Fell out of tree. Black spots on wings.
You are very welcome! Those Gypsy Moths are everywhere, aren't they? They are an invasive species, and can destroy a whole forest with their voracious appetite. I hope to see more of your moths! :)
Thank you @jgorneau I appreciate your comment and ID suggestion and have updated the spotting. It's funny, as she just literally just dropped out of the tree we were picnicking beside. She seemed sluggish (it was the middle of the afternoon). The people I was with thought she was dying. I hope not.I joined your mission last week upon your suggestion about my male gypsy moth spotting (the pair is complete) and earned the patch!Thanks again.
Nice moth! The female Gypsy Moth is too heavy to fly! Isn't that strange? Could you join my mission, Moths of the World?http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841...It will earn you a special limited edition patch!
