Dryocampa rubicunda . It looks like it's wearing fuzzy pajamas and a Dolly Parton wig.

Here's a good example of how fast caterpillars can grow and change...I spotted this one six days ago and revisited it yesterday, shown in this photo...see the photo to the left to see how it looked six days before!

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!

These guys want to eat all they can, so they can become a beautiful Rosy Maple moth...see below!

While exploring a bog today, I came across the oddest "flower" emerging from the ground - pink and yellow, just beautiful. I thought to myself, "what in the world could this be?" Looking closer, I decided it was a couple of moths clasping a new shoot, and apparently drying their wings. Once home, I discovered they are Rosy Maple Moths (Dryocampa rubicunda). They look like furry little Cousin Its...

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 found about half of the 19 larvae from May 10th, today, and they are really maturing and consuming the maple leaves...I wonder if the leaves taste like maple syrup to them...LOL

Rosy maple moth. Because we could all use a little extra sunshine and cotton candy in our lives right now…

Hoo boy this was a fun one. Aside from the pattern on Joker and Harley's clothes. Those were a pain in the ass.


Scarecrow: Emphasis on 'scare' and 'crow'. Wanted something almost inhuman, and very horror-movie looking. I think I got that in spades. Kind of combined him with Ragdoll to tell the truth. I like to think all his bones are double jointed.


Killer Moth: based his coloration on an actual, flamboyantly colored moth called a Rosy Maple Moth. I like to think this Moth is a consummate professional with an extensive kill list. The coloration of the suit and absurdity of the mascot is to throw off his prey. His wings deploy from a pack on his back and assist in gliding long distances. Has weaponry built in all over his suit.


Mad Hatter: Not a whole lot different here, but enough I think. The double-pupil and heterochromia are just kinda for the hell of it, and facially he's rather mouse-like. Otherwise he's just sort of a raggedy version of the original John Tenniel illustration.


Harley Quinn and The Joker: Based these two directly on the classic Commedia D'ell Arte character archetypes of Colombina and Harlequin. Harlequin being a masterful and deceitful trickster and con man with a flair for nobility, and Colombina being his lover, consort and general sidekick. Joker has robin feathers in his hat, for obvious reasons.


This will probably be the last of these I do, as I move onto other stuff. I may do the Batfamily (Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Alfred) as well as Hush and Ra's Al Ghul, but don't hold your breaths.


Otherwise, lemme know what you think!
