Sunday Moth

 

Everyone is familiar with the famous death’s head hawkmoth, but I think it’s a shame we have popularized such a grim character.  Above is a much more cheery Neotropical Arctiinae from French Guiana that looks like it’s sporting a clown face.  Sadly this isn’t my photograph, but you should take a moment to explore Les Lépidoptéristes de France website.  Their photos from their annual expeditions makes me jealous!
