Absolutely gorgeous spot, Claire! Congratulations on spotting of the day! A belated happy National Moth Week!
I saw this one in Columbia, SC SO BEAUTIFUL!
Thanks Maria, Mark & Lauren!
Congratulations on your SOTD from North Carolina, Claire! :)
Many congratulations Claire on such a beautiful moth and photograph.
Thanks so much Yasser and everyone. I do love this moth, though not uncommon at this location, it puts a smile on my face. I am always inspired during Moth Week to take a look at these nocturnal wonders.
I also am reminded of and thankful to the young man who really got me looking at & loving moths, Jacob Gorneau.
Claire, this spotting has me craving some cotton candy! Congratulations on Spotting of the Day and thanks for snapping one of our favorite moths. With a few days left for Moth Week 2014, we're looking forward to seeing what else gets submitted. Congrats again!
Thanks all, the colors are pretty amazing.
Wow! Those colors are sweet!
Ice-cream colours :-)
These ones always astound me with their lovely colors!
