Beautiful Find


Recommended Posts

The really interesting thing about this moth is that it's native to the American tropics, but spread up here to the northern us on its own after the introduction of ailanthus. Being a tropical species, no part of its life cycle is capable of surviving the winter here- it has to migrate north every summer in a songbird- like fashion.
