Hello everyone! ^^ Happy National Moth Week! To celebrate the occasion, share some of your moth observations!
Lepidopterans are easily some of my favorite creatures to observe. While I’m pretty new to iNat I already have a handful of moths under my belt. Geometer moths like Red Twin-Spot Carpets, Pale Beauties, Canadian Melanolophias and Large Maple Spanworms are frequent sights around my area, and I recently got my first visit from a Rosy Maple!
While I’ve been seeing them around for quite some time, I was never able to get a decent photo of any Snout Moths until recently, so I’m pretty happy about that. I also somehow went from having never seen a Polyphemus Moth up close before to seeing my first one a few weeks ago and having a second one literally on my doorstep not long after. That first one was flying around alot and it was a bit hard to get close to it, but the second one was very friendly and may be my favorite moth encounter I’ve had thus far.
Any fellow moth enjoyers have more moths to show me? :D
