Hello everyone and welcome back to Insects, a look at little things!
Today we have one of our day flying moths to show you. This one is in the group of Tiger Moths and is called “Virginia Ctenucha”. It is a fairly large moth about an inch (2.5cm) long body, but its wings make it look longer. It is a very colorful moth with a blue/green body and bright orange head, with chocolate brown wings held in a tent shape over its body. They can be found in June and July up here searching for nectar on a wide variety of flowers. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
