Moth Vistor

This moth is very furry and has a pinkish stripe on his wings. When I got close he raised up on his tail end. Creepy!!

It looks almost like a tiger moth. Very pretty and defensive too!

Cinj said...

Wow, that fuzzy moth would have enjoyed the visit we just made to the state fair. They're easier to get close to than butterflies, aren't they?

What an interesting moth. I have never seen anything like it before, but he seems kind of defensive as Tina said.

Spooky--makes me think of Halloween!

Brenda Kula said...

Isn't it interesting what all we see out there, if only we pause to look? And the beauty, though simple, is both refreshing and wondrous too!

What a pretty moth. I thought at first it was a dove. Had to look twice to realize it wasn't a bird but a moth. Do you have many of them?

Hi tina,
It is a strange moth. Not something I would want to land on my head(-;

Hi cinj,
They are easier to see. I guess they land longer then a butterfly.

Hi pgl,
It is kinda defensive. I was not sure why it was that way. Weird.

Hi meadowview thymes,
LOL it is like halloween.

Hi brenda,
In its own way I guess it is a unique and pretty moth(-:

Hi lola,
I see them from time to time. Not often though. Thank

I can't believe he reared up and challenged you. Funny it was out during the day. I thought they were mainly nocturnal.

garden girl said...

He's really beautiful. I would have been surprised by his agressive side.

Ok ... I have to say I would be RUNNING SCREAMING from this moth monster .. I have a fear of moths you would not believe .. I know you are laughing reading this .. how can a grown woman be that sissy ? LOL

Until I read the topic title, Like Lola, I thought it was a white dove!
Aggressive moth? Wow, interesting...

Hi Anna,
That is weird about the moth. I should have posted the picture of him standing on his end.(-: Maybe he was just scared...(-:

Hi garden girl,
The moth was pretty. furry and unique(-:

Hi Joy,
LOL I was kinda wondering what a moth could do to a person...He was acting all bad and stuff. I just said hold still so I can get a nice picture for my blog. He seemed to understand and calmed down.(-:

Hi Skeeter,
That was a weird moth. I don't remember seeing one do that before. Of course I really haven't paid attention to them before Blogging has made me stop and check out things more closely I guess!
