The Imperial Moth, 14 October 2017

Eacles imperialis, the Imperial moth;
Volusia county, Florida (14 October 2017).

With a wingspan ranging between three and seven inches across, it’s hard to miss an adult Imperial moth, Eacles imperialis, bunkered down on the back of your house. It’s a pretty hefty and colorful moth by North American standards. Fortunately for me, it’s also a species that tends to show up at our home quite a bit. I never get tired of seeing this massive moth resting on our house.
