I hate moths with a vengeance, but I got very excited when I saw this beauty outside our window because it's the first time I've ever seen a live one. He was very patient and tame while I brought out my camera. I jumped back as soon as he fluttered his wings, of course, because I'm a pansy like that.
WOW, you were lucky to see a live one considering the adults only live for a week!
wow!! he is beautiful
Isn't he? A bit banged up, but hey - just shows he's a badass!
So pretty, I wish those were in my region of the world :<
This is the first time I've ever seen one and we have them all over. Funny I never saw one in the Midwest when I lived there all my life, but I move to the South and one shows up!
I like it! But I like every moth..
