Absolutely stunning moth. Sadly, this one was on it's death bed. Wings were were black with yellow patterns and blue dots on hind wings with orange on bottom edge. Abdomen: top is orange. There is a lateral line of blue with a yellow underside. The tip of the abdomen was red. Leg have vivid yellow markings.
Near the Sandia Peak Tramway building. Desert habitat.
Most beautiful moth of my summer so far. Didn't realize how blurry the full body shots are, and it's disappointing.
