Observation date: July 20, 2010

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was on an Aspen in our yard and had been eating the leaves which is why we started looking. It seemed that it only ate at night and sat during the day. We also have apple trees, cottonwoods, honeysuckle, purple pentstemon, yellow evening primrose, butterfly weed, maples, Russian olives, junipers and pines. We have lots of Swallowtail butterflies, occasional monarchs (we have caterpillers this year), what I think are Tawny Emperors, and other orange/black butterflies. We also have Sphinx moths.
