Little Virgin Tiger Moth

June 25, 2017
Dark moth with yellow stripes on leaf litter

Saturday we dropped both kids off at Camp Mowglis for seven weeks, then I rode to Jaffrey with Monty to spend Saturday night there. Weather conditions were good, but we didn't have a huge variety of moth, except for this striking one, which was in the bucket in the morning. It took some prodding to get it out of the bottom of an egg carton (seemed to want to burrow) but it gave me a good photo opportunity before crawling under the leaf litter.
