Winged Garden Visitors

"My beloved has gone down to his garden, to the beds of spices, to pasture his flock in the gardens, and to gather lilies." (Song of Solomon 6:2)


Over a single day last week, there was an influx of all kinds of interesting moths to the garden. I took pictures of a few of them that sat still long enough. Here are my visitors:

Harnessed Moth [(c) 2012 Kim Bennett]

Rosy Maple Moth [(c) 2012 Kim Bennett]

Common Gray [(c) 2012 Kim Bennett]
Great pages for insect study!

Stay tuned for nature studies on moths and butterflies in future posts on "A Child's Garden."

Happy moth gardening!
