Beautiful moth sent by @eawelsh. Not exactly sure I have species correct, but I think it maybe an Amorpha juglandis? Any Lep experts know for sure? And yes, that's just how its wings look. (Thanks @darkrai283 ) At first glance it looks as if it's just eclosed. 😍 #entomology#insect#insects#moth#lepidoptera#sphingidae#biology
For today's post, I'm going back to home base, #Ohio , where I found this quite colorful forest tent #caterpillar . It's a lovely species that isn't always loved due to the silky "tent" they make on trees.
