Seirarctia echo, 18 July 2016

Seirarctia echo, the Echo moth;
Volusia county, Florida (18 July 2016).

Each April and May throughout the Florida peninsula, we are greeted by a new cluster of Echo moths fluttering here, there, and damn near everywhere. Their numbers ease off throughout the summer months and into the fall; late spring is their domain. In caterpillar form, their base tone is bright orange with a series of black and yellow rings.
