A swallow tail. This time of year their wings aren't all chewed up.

K-3 and 55-300 PLM

There is a hummingbird moth and part of a swallow tail in this image. Can you find them.


I can prove the swallow tail was there, I din't see the moth until post processing. Spotted on my morning run to the dump.

I don't have the opportunity to see a Luna Moth very often, once a year if I'm lucky. I was lucky enough to notice this one in the bushes at the end of my driveway as I parked one night. I had to leave my car lights on to have any chance of seeing him, much less taking a picture of him. I set the ISO at 12800 and hoped for the best. After some heavy handed editing this is what I ended up with--I still can't get over how good the high iso capabilities of the modern pentax cameras are. K70 with tam 90.
Well, will wonders never cease,

It says in Wiki that yours reproduce 3 times a year, ours are only reproduce once, you get three times as many chances as we do.

Nice catch Norm! That is an impressive moth! I hope all is well in Algonquin. Three times as many chances and I've seen 2 over the past 5 years! I remember seeing them much more frequently as a child. Herbicides perhaps?....or maybe the lunas are hanging out wherever all of the honey bees went...?

I don't think I've ever seen one before. Rick left his bug zapper on overnight by accident, so they rested near the porch. They were hanging out all day. (Moths this big are way too big to get into the bug zapper for execution.) . They were gone in the morning the next day though.

I think I heard somewhere that all the big Silk Moths have been hit hard by Parasitoids in recent years. In general, parasitoids are the main source of mortality for Butterflies/Moths (hitting mostly eggs and larvae)

Nice, the wings are open. You must have a camera that captures 20 fps😄
