Just an update to the previous posting.  We believe the first Tiger Moth to arrive, the one on the lower left, is a female and we believe she released pheromones to attract a mate. Which will she choose??? In the past Painted Tiger Moths have laid eggs on the siding.  It seems we get several Painted Tiger Moths visiting each year, but we are still thrilled when we spot the first of the season.
