    its a Leopard moth (that’s Geoff & My surname with an extra o). Its unusual in that its larva (caterpillar) feeds inside decaying trees on the rotting wood.

    so pretty. and glad to know the name. your post sparked my interest to see if they are in the US too, as I think I’ve seen one. They are here too! Not where I live now, in the desert, but definitely where I moved from, the southeast. I had no idea that their wingspan is around 3 inches. wow.
    I took a photo of a moth a few years ago that was a pale yellow with pink markings. very pretty. I wonder what it was. Now I really want to know.
    Do you have Luna moths? I’ve always loved them. They were magical when I was a child.
    I may not be able to get over here often, but when I do I love spending time with you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Well thank you Wendy you are always welcome here. The Leopard moth is amazing I felt honoured to see it! The Luna moth is a native north America and apparently it has no mouth so only lives a week. Amazing one was found on a door step in Oakhampton , Devon in 2008 how did it travel to England over 4000 miles? ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

    I think my moth might have been Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda). Cool.

    Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Willow is asking for some expert help with the identification of this beautiful moth… any takers?
