Submitted by: kmontana001
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Was cleaning off my front porch and moved a large planter pot. This beautiful moth appeared on the floor and acting like it was hurt and couldn't fly. I picked it up and placed it in one of my butterfly enclosures because it was pouring down rain. I have since opened the cage door, but he won't leave the cage.I assume he is hurt.
