Rosy Maple Moth

Believe it or not, there are a few species of moth that are fairly pretty... prettier than some butterflies... The rosy maple moth is quite an interesting and beautiful moth.
Anyway, here it is... I find a few of these in my yard every year.

You'd be surprised how many beautiful things lurk in nature that are just overlooked. There's actually a few moths that are rather pretty and I'm certain some of them occur in your area.
I find that most people are so focused on other things in life that they miss some of the smaller things.

you'd be surprised what kind of interesting things you can find in your own backyard, if only you look... Hey, you might even fine some beauty in a black widow :)
