|I know very little about moths. I will edit this entry if I find more about this particular species.|
I found this little guy on the ground near where we parked the pickups for the week of fishing. You can see his wings are broken, so he could not fly away. That is probably the reason why I found it there in the middle of the day. I really like the furry appearance of it's head and it's big eyes.
EDIT: Because of it's weird antennas, I think it might be a "gypsy moth", or "Lymantria dispar". They apparently fly day and night, and are a major defoliation pest in hardwood forests.
