Camo moth - Eumorpha pandorus
Timonium , Baltimore County, Maryland, USA
July 27, 2009
Size: 3 inches
This was on my patio door at night. Like many moths that get attracted to my living room light. I have never seen a pattern like this before on the moths in my area they are usually brown. I am in a pretty populated neighborhood but I have about three trees in front of my apartment window.

Moved from ID Request.

Found a Camo moth on base today
It was beautiful. I had never seen one before. It was laying on the concrete so I picked it up with a plastic card and moved him to the shade in the grass. really cool insect.

Please see...

Note the / before the ending [url]

Yeah I did that
but the replies are all italics too, so I'm thinking I left off the / on the italics in my first post and now its just putting all the replies in italics too.


Yeah its weird.
It won't let me edit my first post either. Never had this happen before :-P
