Male Imperial Moth

Dear Mrs. Williams,
You rescued a male Imperial Moth from the birds, and for that reason, we are tagging your submission with the Bug Humanitarian Award.  According to BugGuide:  “wings yellow, variably spotted and shaded with pinkish, orangish, or purplish-brown; male more heavily marked than female, especially in the south.”  You can better understand that description by viewing a mating pair of Imperial Moths with the male in the lower position. 

Ty for info and the award its doing good where I put him hopefully he makes it
