Giant Orange Butterfly
July 16, 2009
I found this bug sitting on the ground at my apartment. It is about 2 or 3 inches long. The pictures I took pretty much explain everything else. Thank you!
This is a Regal Moth or Royal Walnut Moth, not a butterfly. The Regal Moth only lives a few days as an adult and it does not feed. It mates and dies shortly after.
