Last week I sent you pictures of a Blinded Sphinx Moth I found. Today to my delight my mom spotted this gorgeous beauty on the side of our house. Like the Sphinx, this moth seemed comfortable sitting in my hand and I got a few good pictures that I thought you might enjoy! I only found one other on your site, so here’s more for your collection.
Though we actually have multiple images of Great Tiger Moths, Arctia caja, buried in our archives, we always love posting high quality new images. The Great Tiger Moth is found in Eurasia as well as North America. Like many other Tiger Moths, the Great Tiger Moth does not feed as an adult.
