The butterfly season is definitely over for me, but caterpillars and moths may still be found in my area. This #borderedwhite #bupaluspiniaria #tallmätare may have a fantastic camouflage, but away from the pine tree it's no good.

This is a Chickweed Geometer Moth from late the other night.  Most moth species are similar looking to another and some aren’t even separable without the help of DNA.  Thats not the case with this moth.  There’s no other moth similar.

I usually don't photograph moths, but some true beauty can be found there too, like this incredibly tiny but pretty and colorful Pyrausta purpuralis.

I believe this is a Morning-glory Plume Moth.  Plume moths are unique because they roll their small wings and hold them perpendicular to their body at rest.  I usually photograph moths well before sunrise with a diffused flash but for this shot, I didn’t need my flash because I took it at sunrise.  The natural light enabled me to get the green background from the grass. .

This Virginia Creeper Sphinx moth is the most common Sphinx moth I see in my backyard.  It’s probably true for most people in the eastern half of the US.  Their color is varies from lots of green to no green at all.

These are a few pictures of some Actias larva I’ve reared in the past. Often while collecting I will encounter damaged female moths. From these I am able to either rear them or I give them to a local friend to rear them for me. Doing it this way is the best way to ensure perfect quality specimens!

Before and after mounting! In my previous post I shared info regarding my favorite groups of Day moths! Now I want to hear what is your favorite genus of family and why???
I’ll give comments I find interesting a shoutout!!

Here is an example of something I mentioned in my previous post! This is an Amata, they are one of the few moths that can be found in large numbers at the right open grassy area. They feed on low growing plants and it’s one of the few day moths I have had success breeding! Unfortunately many species their hosts are unknown! 
Comment below what you’d like me to post next?!?!?

Not the best picture but my favorite specimens. Day moths, despite being moths they are often more colorful than butterflies and way more challenging to catch too! Butterflies readily come to bait, flowers, stream sides, etc. moths come to MV lights like a magnet! Day moths on the other hand vary extremely species by species, some species only inhabit the treetops hovering high above the canopy taking brief breaks once in a while, others are specific to a singing level type of grass, others only fly for about 3 days early in the spring. This is what makes Day moths so interesting and why I love to collect and specialize on them. PS: If you have any day moths hit me up for a trade!

It has been a little while since I’ve last posted but I’m back at it again! Above are a few Papilio macckii. Comment below what you would like me to post next! Moths? Butterflies? Beetles? And live or specimen pictures?

This Virginian Tiger Moth (Spilosoma virginica) is one of the first moths I identified with the help of my old Peterson’s Field guide a long time ago.  Thanks to the Moth Photographers Group website which came around probably over 10 years ago now which made it much easier for me to ID moths.

Here is a video of some nice metallic blue butterflies from Hainan China, anyone care to guess the species?For collecting this species a bait trap is an absolute must. Here is what you were asking about @rhaveyn !!

My favorite time to photograph is early in the morning when butterflies are just warming their wings! Otherwise many species would be flying high in the canopy where photographing them would be much more difficult!!

As soon as this Junonia orithya perched upon the rock on a sunny morning I snapped this picture! This genus is particularly interesting considering the variety displayed between individuals. Each specimen varies by color, pattern and number of eyes spots!
