Spotty Moth..

This is a Heliotrope Moth or  Utetheisa pulchelloides. The photo was taken today with the Macro and Canon EOS 550D……..spotted when checking for other interesting bugs……..sharing the nectar on a Sedum flower with the bees.  It was only about 10mm long.  My daughter said it looks like a giant standing on a million tulips!

and a honey bee.

I do love my bugs………..

    It’s neat to see the proboscis both furled and unfurled. Beautiful photos!
