The Pearly Wood Nymph, 30 April 2014

Eudryas unio, the Pearly wood nymph;
Flagler county, Florida (30 April 2014).

Ranging throughout much of the eastern portion of the United States, the Pearly wood nymph, Eudryas unio, is a member of Family Noctuidae (the Owlets and Miller Moths). I photographed this individual bunkered down for the day in Flagler county. It’s certainly a simple and elegantly folded moth. Check out the scalloped trim on the edges of those wings. Remarkable, right?
