Caterpillars found at Blandair Park and most were parasitized. Four that were visually okay were brought home and cared for. Few weeks later and four really awesome moths were in the enclosure and next dry evening were released.

I had never seen this kind of moth and I was so happy that I had my new macro lens to get this shots two weeks ago in West Virginia.

Blakeley State Park seems to be in the pink these days, with the previously posted pink Katydid and this gorgeous Rosy Maple Moth being found within a day!

This is my favorite photo of the year, of one of my favorite species! It's Dryocampa rubicunda, the rosy maple moth. I often call it the rainbow sherbet moth.

Edgefield County, South Carolina


These caterpillars are also called Green-striped Mapleworms.

First rosy maple moth (Dryocampa rubicunda) of the season! I am always suprised by the Dunkin Donuts-like coloration on these beauties.

gotta luv a furry pink and yellow moth... ;)

The rosy maple moth (Dryocampa rubicunda) is always a delight to find. Those pink legs and pink-and-yellow wings are unforgettable. This one was on our property near Mars Hill, Madison Co., NC.

Have a wonderful, safe, fun weekend, everyone...and a happy Memorial Day long weekend to all of the Flickr crew here in the USA!
