Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I stepped out of my front door tonight and this enormous, spectacular moth flew into my entryway and landed on a bouquet of fresh flowers!! I took a few photos and then took the moth back outside where it flew around my porch light for a minute and then landed on my gardenia plant, clinging to a limb in a roosting position. It will be interesting to see if it's still there tomorrow morning. Gorgeous!!
