Ceanothus Silk Moth, Hyalophora euryalus
I just recently started surfing your awesome webpage and thought I would send in a nice picture I got of a Ceanothus Silk Moth. This little guy was hanging out at a gas station in the Sacramento Valley, California in late June 2007. I had just recently left to visit the college I am currently attending when I snapped this photo. 🙂 Moths are my favorite type of insect, so needless to say, he cheered me up quite a bit and cured me of some of my nervousness about leaving home. Hope you enjoy the photo! Sorry if it’s a little large!
Thanks so much for sending us your wonderful photo. Good luck at your new school.
