Look what I found coming to life in my front yard one day as I was picking up pinecones from the lawn. What a lovely surprise! I was giddy with joy at this beautiful discovery. I had never seen one before so I got google’s help to determine it’s a silk moth. If you liked this moth, you might like some of the butterflies I’ve photographed: black and blue (be sure to scroll down to see the yellow swallowtail, too), dream, bonus, quote, monarch.
