Just sharing - Lymantria dispar - male

Just sharing - Lymantria dispar - Male
Franklin, Oakland County, Michigan, USA
August 1, 2009
I don't need an ID for this beautiful male gypsy moth from Michigan. Just want to share the photo but don't know where else to upload it. Don't you just love those antennae?

Moved - International Moth of Mystery!
Site navigation lessons aside, I moved this from ID Request in the interest of de-cluttering.

I love this image. I never thought I'd say that about a gypsy moth!

(I'm surprised there are only 5 pages of gypsy moth images - maybe it's considered "too common to photograph.")

Tag followed by Untag will do nothing
You just went in a circle. From note below: At this point, having posted to ID Request, you can TAG the images and then go to the Gypsy page in the guide, click on Images, and then on "Move Tagged Images".
It has to be that sequence of clicks. Let us know if you still have problems.
You can find their images by searching on Gypsy Moth because a search returns anything remotely related to the query, but that doesn't mean they are on the Gypsy Moth page. The line of text at the top of the page will tell you where the image resides. If you look at the top you will see this image is in ID Request.

Just a reminder, Hilma
These still need to be Tagged and Moved

 
I thought they were
Sorry, I thought I had moved them. I found their photos under gypsy moth but apparently I've done something wrong. I tagged them, went to Gypsy Moth and untagged them there. Can you help me, please?

Thanks for sharing Hilma...how cute!! :o)

If you are certain they are Gypsy Moths
you can go to the Gypsy Moth page in the guide and just add them there instead of ID Request. At this point, having posted to ID Request, you can TAG the images and then go to the Gypsy page in the guide, click on Images, and then on "Move Tagged Images". One other thing, you need to unlink these images when you get there. Link is reserved here for multiple images of the same individual. Since these are different genders, that can't be true in this case. We love this shot!

 
Thank you
Thank you for helping me find the right location.

 
They are definitely Gypsy Mot
They are definitely Gypsy Moth.
