Tersa Sphinx MothPosted: July 29, 2016
Another moth landed on the back porch. This one is Tersa Sphinx Moth that feeds on pollen. It is about 3 inches long and has a beautiful sleek body with interesting shaped wings.
Its coloring looks like fine grained wood. It is a nocturnal creature and was probably on the porch that morning because its life cycle was ending.
In case you missed it, check out the Luna Moth.
