Underwing Moth

November 23, 2020

This underwing moth (Catocala faustina is my guess) has been lucky to escape danger, evident by the piece missing from its wing. Butterflies and moths are prey for a lot of animals, so it always makes me happy to see beat-up, tattered wings on these insects; it’s a good indication that they’ve lived a long, full life.
