Garden Moths

This is an Imperial moth (Eacles imperialis) that I found in our garden yesterday evening. I usually find 10 or more of the Imperial moths in the garden every year but this is the first one this year. Lunar moths are also popular in our area too but I have only  seen one of those this year too!

Do you often find the large moths in your garden?

It’s Friday! :) Enjoy your weekend!

  1. She’s gorgeous! Great capture! We haven’t seen a single large moth this season. We see them more in late August or September, so hope we will still spot one. What plant is she resting on ? Lovely leaves ;-)
