Neat series - moths and butterflies are such interesting creatures and it will be fun to see the adult moth. Isn't spring wonderful?

They usually come out at night, lay their eggs and then just hang around on a local bush until they die. The adults never eat, so they are not around long, but are very cool looking.

Hey! His mother loves him!

Actually, I did not remember those shots Roy. I am looking forward to seeing the "after" photos.
