Jeff and I took our daily walk at the Greenway, Nick Creek Section~ Aberdeen.
Sans Binoculars…seems that’s been happening a lot lately.
(Barb Padgett..did you see that? ^^)
Oh well…. We did come across this sweet little Fox Squirrel.
I came up with a few hunting blogs and website with photos of dead Fox squirrels.
They are hunted in many states.
Not much of a sport in my opinion, when this one saw me it stood like this for a few minutes checking me out.
On the last leg of our walk…and the last leg of my camera battery, I was able to take one photo of this moth.
My facebook friends Identified this moth for me…Got to Love Social Media! Check out our conversation below.
Penny Dinneen Hillemann Handsome!
Dawn Simmons Fine It was very fuzzy wuzzy.
Lorri Freedman Looks like a Buck Moth. I think.
Gila Shoshannah gorgeous! I think Lorri's right. Saturnid for sure.
Dawn Simmons Fine Ok I am reading about the Buck Moth now..sounds right..we are in the Sandhills .lots of scrub oak.
Gila Shoshannah as we can see from the leaves:)
Dawn Simmons Fine A very beautiful Moth. It didnt move..
Anna Fasoli wow never saw one of these before!
Gila Shoshannah cold and conserving energy? What time of day? Perhaps it was waiting for the sun to warm it up a bit?
Lorri Freedman Dawn, It might have just emerged from it's cocoon. It could sit for quite a while letting it's wings dry. It looks like it's in perfect condition, so that's probably it. That's when moths and butterflies alike are most vulnerable.
Gila Shoshannah again, Lorri is likely to be right!
Lorri Freedman Any time.
Kevin Rushton It's way cool whatever it is:)
Mark Lynch Moth, possibly a species of Buck Moth. Need to check the new guide.
Matt Pelikan Hemileuca maia, perhaps.
Craig Glenn Looks like an oak leaf to me. ~grin~
Craig Glenn Oh damn! That's cool!!! LOL
Barbara Martin So wonderful
That’s all for now from Carthage, NC.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
