The Garden Tiger Moth is found throughout the Paleartic, and are mostly nocturnal.
Some days go by unnoticed but not today. A bright flame of a moth, in tribute of the victims and heroes of 9/11/01.
The natural world is amazing. So many varieties, especially in the insect world. One of my friends suggested I paint a spider. Nope Nope Nope.
A spectacular moth, “Merveille du Jour” is a perfect name – marvel of the day. Common to England and Wales (sometimes Scotland) with distinctive markings. They look almost marbled!
What a lovely name, “Beautiful Yellow Moth” – sounds so exotic. The real name seems to be Amaxia Pulchra Tiger Moth. Which is also pretty cool.
Google failed me. I could not (easily) find information about this moth, other than Embroidered and Aqua. So there. It’s an Embroidered Aqua Moth.
