Virginia Ctenucha Moth

I found this beautiful little fellow this summer in a field of wildflowers.

I figured I better share the images before the snow flies.

I'm editing a bunch of fall photos that were made over the weekend so stay tuned.






Linking with MACRO MONDAY 2.

Beautiful photos of the Virginia Ctenucha moth. The iridescence is gorgeous. I have several Tiger moths in my yard but not this one.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a moth quite like that one...he's gorgeous! But I do recognize those "teeth" that he's perched on :)
