Imperial Moth

My contribution to eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #84. And to Butterfly Week 5 at Andyslens.


And now for Le Grand Fromage: Imperial Moth, Eacles imperialis

Here's another of that face (I was trying to get a better pic than I did in 2012):

Warmed up and ready to fly off into the woods:

You'll just have to imagine an Imperial Moth wearing a Stormtrooper helmet, I have no photoshop skills at all.

This is one of the more spectacular fences in German Village every year and is my contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #70:

Bold Chipmunk

My contribution to EileeninMd's Saturday's Critters #83:

Usually chipmunks head for a hole in the ground when frightened, but this one tried to brazen it out on the tree while I was walking Theda. Eventually he/she/chipmunk ran for it...until then Theda had her nose to the ground and didn't even notice.


Here are a couple of butterflies for Weekend Butterfly #06 at Andyslens:


A few birds who visited the suet feeder this week:
