I Heart Moths

Yesterday evening I stepped outside the store for a smoke and saw a very unusual green moth on the window sill. I was intrigued enough that it was green. The only green moths I've seen had gossamer wings, and these wings were of the velvety variety, on a plump, fuzzy green moth.

When I took a closer look I saw two perfectly shaped hearts, one on each wing. They were Valentine-style hearts, dark green around the edges (darker than the wings), fading to a lighter green toward the center. One heart right in the middle of each wing. 

Both Dave and Mitchell took pictures of it. I attempted to upload Dave's picture, which he posted on his facebook, but am sorry to report it was a fail.

Green moth with green hearts on its wings. Stunning. Never saw anything like it before. I'm going to see if I can find info online.




found: Pacific Green Sphinx. None of the images I found show heart shapes as distinct and perfect as on the moth I saw, though.
