Rosy Maple Moth


I thought moths are gray-brownish ugly creatures that have to be fought with moth balls. Not this one! This Rosy Maple Moth was spotted and paparazzied by my husband this summer! It looks so cute in this yellow fur and pink decoration – I wish those come as pets!

    If you ever get a chance to see a Luna Moth, your opinion of them will change forever. There are many species of moths that are far more beautiful than their butterfly cousins.

    But I have to confess, I’ve never seen this kind before! Great shot!

    Wow, that is a beautiful moth, i always think of them as dull colours. That is more like a pretty butterfly.

    Great capture.
