Very nice cecropia moths! I raised some two years ago, but didn't find any eggs or larvae last summer.

I think this is an American dagger moth caterpillar. Ouch! Sorry for the bad photos, too hot and humid for the camera to adapt. This guy was on the move!

Black-waved flannel moth (Lagoa crispata)

Really cute little moth. Played dead in my hand. Found it in Rockbridge, OH on 7/10/16.

Wow is that ever a clever looking fella.
Looks like it's wearing one of those fuzzy warm pimp coats.

I don't know what these are or if they are even moths but one was on my front door and the other on the wall of the house next to the door. That one has been there a couple of days. What could he be doing? Sorry for the bad photos, taken in a rush on my iPhone. Oh, and one beauty I haven't seen around here in years!

First is a male polyphemus. Second is a tulip-tree beauty. The third is not moth.
