Pandora Sphinx Moth

DSC_0250(rev 0)

This is a photo from a few years ago, but as this seems to be the year of the moth in the garden, I thought I would post it.  This is a Pandora Sphinx Moth.  Its coloring is spectacular and is certainly meant to keep the moth blended into the background.  It is also nocturnal and feeds on nectar.

    I’ve never seen a moth like that, but then again, it blends so well with the leaf that maybe they’ve been around and I haven’t noticed. Thanks for always introducing me to fun and new things!

    You do find the most amazing moths. I wonder what it needs these long feelers for. They look like dangerous weapons.

  4. What a crazy bug! Insect. Optical illusion? Thx for sharing one of nature’s everyday gifts!
