The Scarlet-bodied wasp moth in Volusia county, Florida (23 April 2015)

Cosmosoma myrodora, the Scarlet-bodied wasp moth;
Volusia county, Florida (23 April 2015).

A few shots of a Scarlet-bodied wasp moth taken a few years back on my back patio. Though confused as (or at least suspected of) being some kind of devious wasp out to punish All Things Human, Cosmosoma myrodora is indeed simply a gorgeous, harmless, and radiant species of moth. I’m always happy to find one loitering about near my patio windows.
