Grapevine Looper life cycle - Eulithis

Grapevine Looper life cycle - Eulithis
Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina, USA
July 6, 2005
Mystery solved. This brown moth came out today. I am surprised that the moth is actually fairly big compared to the small cocoon. Also, I had a strange notion that moth cocoons were fuzzy not hard like a chrysalis. On July 3rd, I found it still wiggling around. I assume that means it had just become a cocoon because soon after it hardened and stopped moving. This shot is on my daughter's finger with a flash...I tried to get a natural lighting shot outside but it flew away. !!!

Nice followthrough
I was hoping it would be viable.
