Giant Leopard Moth

Early yesterday morning, we spotted this striking moth.  It was perched on a low point of one of the deck supports.  Cool!

It seems to be a Giant Leopard Moth, but I'm certainly not a moth expert!

  1. It matches the photo in the Bug Guide so I would say it's a Giant Leopard Moth too. Nice find.

  2. What a stunner. I'm increasingly interested in the arcane world of moths. Yours was a real treat. Rob

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
