Beautiful, your male better behaved in the trap (no wing damage) than mine. Lost a few scales from top of thorax
Thank you, Tony! I think the trap was pretty rowdy with 1 each of Small-eyed and Twin-spotted Sphinx as well as the Carpenterworm.
Haven't come across one of these. A rugged looking individual Joanne; and a nice shot.
Thanks, Danny! Rugged looking he was, the female would have been even larger with gray underwings
WOO HOO!!! SO happy for you Joanne! Perhaps there is hope I many get it too...Fabulous shot, CONGRATS!!!!
Thank you, Nancy!! No prob with id for this one, for sure. I was so very surprised and delighted to see it!!
Also had 9 old friends in the trap this morning: Bent-winged Owlet, Small-eyed Sphinx, Twin-spotted Sphinx, Striped Chocolate-tip Prominent, The Brother, Green Leuconycta, Early Button Slug Moth, Small Phoenix and another handful and a half of others.
A beautiful image, Jo, and a great moth! Congratulations on the lifer.
Thank you, Stu!
WOW, Jo. Superior image! Love all things Black & White. Such a lovely combo!
