sable moths
Hello bug people,
Thought you might enjoy this photo of what I think are White Spotted Sables, Anania funebris. They were on my deck in upstate New York in early June. My five-year-old son and I thought they were very handsome, although we had different theories about what they might be doing.

Hi Kathie and Cole,
Cole is correct. The White Spotted Sable Moths are mating. Kathie, we are not sure what you thought they were doing.
