Pink Lemonade Moth


While shopping a few weeks ago, we walked out of a store to find this moth. I never seen such a moth and immediately decided I found a new species, the Pink Lemonade Moth. 

Once we got home, we searched on the Internet and found that this moth is the Rosy Maple Moth. 


I think the Rosy Maple Moth is one of most beautiful moths I have ever seen.

And I do wonder if she was shopping and simply got tired out from not finding what she was looking for, like I do sometimes.

Before your sight,
Mounts on the breeze the butterfly,
 and soars,
Small creature as she is, from earth's bright flowers
Into the dewy clouds.
Wordsworth

  15. Good for you, finding such a color-coordinated and fashion-conscious moth. It's good that you renamed the species - yours is much nicer.
