Grainy picture because I couldn't get real close, Scarlet Tanager...and coming home I caught this she-bitch with her kit scoping out the garden for voles and such.

Regal Moth, or what the old timers sometimes call a Hickory Horned Devil due to the caterpillar. Harmless, but both moth and caterpillar and huge.

Dude, that is a cecropia moth. I used to collect moths and butterflies as a kid. Had a huge collection. I would find cocoons and bring them home. Ma was always finding cecropia's , polyphemus and luna moths flying the routes from my bedroom.

You are absolutely correct...got it off a hickory tree and jumped the gun. I bow down to Buffalo Bill's advanced knowledge.

From the hawkdrver living room and wildlife center. Bunch of new calves around this time of year. They like that tall buffalo grass in the foreground, lot of times we'll be watching a movie and look over and there will be a moose looking in at us.

What moth is this?

I found it this morning in a house where they had just sanded the sheetrock. It must have come in last night. It probably drowned in the dust.

The camouflage on that moth is awesome.
