My Son wants to be a Moth for Halloween. Who can blame him?

In the latest of our string of taking photographs of the creepy crawlies in our yard, check out this hairy dead-leaf wing-patterned moth.  Beautifully ugly!  Any idea, on entomologist, what it is?


Our household kind of got a little freaked out when we started looking at the zoomed in photographs- check it out below!up-close

But of course, it was a very docile creature- not interested in hurting anyone… Of course, if I did see him walking down the street, I wouldn’t be so sure!wider

I wonder if this moth only matures in the autumn of the year- its wing pattern suggests such.  What do you think?


Any guess on its real name- we’d love to hear and share with everyone!!
