Beautiful large brown moth with white stripes on the forewings. The hindwing is pink with a dark edging. It was feeding along side a Hummingbird for a while. The larva can be seen at my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/230...
This moth was out in the middle of the day, feeding on our Mountain Penstemon that is growing wild in our grassland and chaparral areas of our property.
"The adult of this species is a key pollinator of the rare lemon lily (Lilium parryi) in California." This is my 4000th spotting!!!
