I like moths

I’m always on the lookout for a Lepidoptera, big ones, small ones, fuzzy ones, colorful ones, I just like them.

Spring is here

Yesterday I planted flowers in preparation for the return of flutter-bees (butterflies). 3 Daffodils, 11 Primroses, and 3 Primula.
My critter sightings have greatly increased since the month began. I hope I get to see swaths of moths this year. I'm still on the look out for any moth in the Saturniidae or Sphingidae family. And yes, I do know I have those Tabaco hawkmoths but I'm talking wild Leps, besides they're still pupating. After 54 days I'm not sure if this is normal like they're overwintering or something? I also have a Geometer moth pupa about the size of a grain of rice, unknown what specific moth it is. I may or may not wait for my 3 other pupa to hatch before buying more Painted lady caterpillars, I've been waiting all winter to get more but 7 more Leps in my house plus the moths I catch sometimes is probably too many.
