Butterflies and Moths


This spectacular fellow is a FORBES SILK MOTH. We find a few every year around the yard, but not often. The picture doesn't really show it, but the whitish tear shaped markings on the wings actually are clear—you can see right through them. Interestingly, even folks who've become enamored of butterflies only infrequently check out the moths, but in fact there are many more moth species and many of them are as elegant and beautifully detailed as any creatures Mother Nature has on her roles. We often leave the lights on over the parking area overnight, and in the mornings thousands of moths of all descriptions are clinging to the walls near the lights.
