Ceanothus silk moth was warming itself on a wire fence waiting for a mate.
Early morning crawl after popping out of cocoon. We just provide the plants, he is wild.
The image is a little distorted because she/he is fluttering.
This Ceanothus Silk Moth, Hyalophora euryalus is watching me.
Those big silk moth antenna are for smelling a mate. The wings are all folded because this moth has just emerged from the cocoon.
