Royal Walnut Moth

Hi Jessica,
This is our first posting this year of a Royal Walnut Moth.  Often beautiful moths and butterflies develop from nondescript caterpillars, but this is not the case of the Royal Walnut Moth, which begins life as a spectacular Hickory Horned Devil.

Location: North Carolina
