[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Many females of the Tussock family of moths don't have wings

The Hawk moth (Sphinx) is the worlds fastest flying insect attaining speed of over 50 kph

Moth antennae are either feather like or a hair like filament.

The Cecropia moth is North America's largest insect.

Moths have hairy bodies to help retain internal body temperature necessary for flight.

Quite a few moths fly during the day, such as the Hummingbird Clearwing, Virginia Ctenucha and the Spear-Marked Black.

In colder climates some moths can have a two year life cycle.

Some moth caterpillars, such as the "Io" are covered with stinging hairs.

Moths make up 80 percent of the order lepidoptera.
