Imperial Moth

Click to enlarge.
I am pretty sure this is an imperial moth. I notice some of us have either been posting some of these beauties--well, butterflies mostly, but I always think of moths when I think of butterflies. Anyway, I found Butterflies and Moths of North America and that will be helpful to some of us. The thumbnails of the photos in the gallery are not real great, but most of the time the ones I clicked to enlarge were pretty decent photographs.

And THIS is another place I found with photographs--I don't think it quite as good as the one listed above but it isn't too bad.

I don't normally think of moths as beautiful, but this one made me change my mind!

Precious moth with some charming yellow colors.
It is of the class that carries the skull in the back. The ones that have seen for our country, they are a lot more dark, this is "guap�sima". A good shot.
