Wow, Albert! What an incredible macro shot. I love the detail of the antennae. We've chosen this beauty as spotting of the day!

"How incredible is this Monkey Moth? The filamentous antennae of this moth can do more than just sense smell. Moths, like airplanes, have "gyroscopes" to control their flight patterns. A moth's antennae can act like an airplane's gyroscope to stabilize its flight."

Hi Albert! Could I ask for your input again: Think I may have the ID wrong on this spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/705...
... Should this one's ID actually be Cricula silkmoth (Cricula trifenestrata)?
