A clearing in rain forest, attracted to lights.
How did a missed this most wonderful spotting!? What a fantastic, beautiful moth and great pictures!! If this Moth have a name it would have to do with monkeys or bears for sure, sooo furry!! Thank you so much for sharing, elaphrus and Congratulations.
Beautiful! Congratulations on Moth of the Month and Spotting of the Day!
Congratulations on this great looking moth!
Can anybody provide a sense of scale? How big is this moth?
Incredible moth. I certainly don't know what it is, but the antenna are similar to the famous "poodle moth" that hit the internet by storm. Arthur Anker posted the images of a "white" moth on Flicker here:http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=80125969@N00&q=poodle%20moth Despite the hype, he is a reputable photographer and has many great images of insects and marine life. So far I don't see any scientific name given.
Wow! Incredible! Congratulations.
What a remarkable moth. Amazing tarsii and antennae. The wings look too small to get such a hairy fellow into the air. Congratulations on SOTD!!!! Wonderful.
Loool, @Joshua Asel :D

Congratulations on the SOTD. It's a truly amazing spotting.
Great capture Elaphrus,beautiful,congrats on the SOTD and thanks for sharing
Congratulations - great spot!
Phil, I agree, especially because it has the same antennae. I haven't seen where anyone actually has IDed or described the Poodle Moth that was photographed in Venezuela, except that it seems to be an Arctiinae.
What a moth !! Congratulations !!!
Amazing! It looks almost extraterrestrial! I love it!
