|Eacles imperialis – Imperial Moth |
About 11:30 PM, several days ago, I was ready to leave work. My car was parked in the parking deck there. As I went to open the door on my car I spotted this large yellow moth attached to the door on my car. I took several pics there (the car is red), then moved the moth to the ground, where I took this picture. This is really quite a large moth... over 4 inches wide. This turned out to be the best pic of the bunch. Though not a great shot, it does show the pattern and shape of the moth. I've never seen one of these before.
Thanks for taking a look.

beautiful moth Paul, good sharpness, maybe next time try to move it to some tree so you get interesting bark as a bg?
It's been years since I saw one of these little beauties. Lucky you were to spot him on your car before you took off. Such a gorgeous looking moth with very unique markings and attractive colors. Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS on him.
