That's gorgeous. I love me some pokey dots.
He/She is a rather little fashionista, is s(he)?What a great capture.
Such a pretty creature of nature.
Cool, but also kind of creepy. I don't do well with bugs.
Very beautiful bug. :)
wow! this is gorgeous looking! great find and capture!
A very handsome moth - getting on in life.
I will agree with magiceye, a handsome specimen.Now, I will agree with Robin, don't like bugs....lolGreat capture though.....
That has to be one of the most interesting critters I have ever seen.
Very cool. Hope you all had a great time in ole Virginie! Glad all are home safe.
I like that you remembered exactly where we were. What a fun trip!
Beautiful. I have never seen one before. In fact, this summer, so far, I have only seen one butterfly.Your visit will count and help me Make History. Pick a Peck of Pixels
It really was an amazing critter.
Great shot but ugh! what sort of critter is that? It looks huge. I hope that was a macro. I really do. Pretty, but made me shiver too.
Oh my that is just awesome. I love it.
Looks like, fittingly enough, a Lunar Lander.
These bugs are like a hidden universe. Makes us feel like Stanley Livingstone when we uncover one! Beautiful portrait!
a most beautiful critter...is that a leopard moth...lolhoping you had a wonderful virginia weekend.
he's way too beautiful to squish!
Brilliant shot, Daryl!
yikes! creepy beautiful!
Maybe he was looking for some gas?
Quiet a capture there Chickie!WONDERFUL to meet you!
That's got to be one of the coolest critters I've seen lately! Definitely the fashionista of the insect realm.
As far as creatures go this one is really pretty!
WOW I wonder what it looked like with it's wings unfurled?
I love it! Stupendous! You carry your camera everywhere, right? Is this the new one, 'cause it's very sharp with great color?Sounds like you had a lot of fun blogfesting with no Internet...heh, heh.
Hey! I know that bug!! His cousins live on my porch!!P.S. - I'm missin' my favorite New Yawker;)
Most amazing bug.. and I don't likebugs. See way too many here. That one was wearing haute couturecamouflage.Sounds like you had a very good time at the blogfest.
Wow, I've never seen anything quite like that. It looks like she's wearing a frock.
Great capture and so stylish!Hope you're enjoying your time away in that beautiful state.
YOu find the most amazing things to get shots of! Love this.
Gorgeous moth - quite stunning! Or is it a butterfly? Beautiful, whatever - well captured.
A great photo of a very cool bug!

what a cool looking moth! He can come live here, anytime.
OMG! I go help out with rafting for 10 days and look what happens while I'm gone! You're gone too! AND - you get a troll visiting and leaving a comment!Life is so much fun - ain't it?!(missed you btw)
That's beautiful Daryl! Natural colour too. I love moths - as long as they don't fly into my face!
Just stumbled upon our moth friend's name: Giant Leopard Moth. You can find him in wikipedia.org or go here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/493/bgpage
And Aileni is right -beautiful moth is definitely on the back side of it's life.
That moth was meant to be featured in Monochrome Weekly. Please send it our way.
This is great! I've never seen anything quite like that little guy!
Wow - that is one classy insect! I agree with the other comments about it being a true fashionista. It could be your mascot!
What an unusual bug! And a great close-up.
Wow, this is a beauty!
What a little beauty! Nature, indeed, has so much beauty in it.
That's cool! I've never seen a leopard moth before!
That's an exquisite little (big?) creature. I just saw the t-shirt in the sidebar as I was clicking to comment.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!hahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahaha!!!HILARIOUS!
I've never seen anything like that! How interesting.
I bet Asthmagirl didn't take a picture of that!The markings on it are very beautiful... Again I'm going to have to say we don't have moths that color here, just brown and black, but big!
Thank god it was in Virginia not ni New York! :)
