Love that second shot! Really atmospheric. And the moth is beautiful.

Thanks people!

Skippers are sort of like butterfly-moth hybrids, but technically they are butterflies.

Here is another link that has photos of many kinds of spreadwing skippers.

Horace's, Juvenal's, and the Wild Indigo Duskywing are all very similar. I just decided to call them Horace's, as that is a common one here in Ohio.

What you should do with the big orb in the night sky.

Wow, you sure caught a magical moment. I saw perhaps that almost same sky, just a few nights ago. Seeing the clouds are just per magic in my eyes!

Karen S. said...

A cloudly-beautiful moment indeed it was!

Like the contrast between the orbs and the moon shot.
