Rosy Maple Moth

originally posted Jun 8, 2006

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.
