Garden Tiger Moth

A few weeks ago I was wandering around the yard and dreaming of what to do with our neglected backyard, when I stumbled upon a bright brown creature.

After a few hours of searching in my books and on the net, I found out what this beautiful moth was.

Most photos of this type of moth were black and white looking. It wasn’t until it opened it’s outer wings and showed my the bright orange and black underwings. I looked in my old itty bitty Butterfly and Moth book and found it.

A femal Garden Tiger Moth.

After showing the girls and Bill we left it be. I love finding such beautiful treasures in my yard.
