Great Leopard Moth


I have to admit that I took this photo LAST summer, so it is actually a little over a year old. It is a tiny bit blurry, as well, but if you want to get an even clearer view, you can hop over to "What's That Bug?" and see other photos of the lovely little guy (or girl?). I haven't ever seen one of these before up close (other than books), so it was great to get a chance to photograph it. This particular moth was on the wall (in a small town in Central Texas) just above a trash can at a Mc Donald's we ate at while passing through. I hated to leave him there, afraid some kid would touch him. He wasn't going anywhere. My camera was only inches away, and he just sat and posed. This is such a pretty moth. I like the plain white Tiger Moth as well (nice and furry). Neat little critters. If you want to read more about the Great Leopard Moth, check out this interesting site by Texas A&M.
