Crecopia Moth on one of the pillars of the Roosevelt Lodge in Yellowstone National Park. Definitely needs to be viewed in the largest sizes. Its body and even its wings seemed to be covered in hairs. According to my book, crecopia moths are not found in that part of the country, but he was there! It was quite a cold day and the moth seemed to be unwilling to move. I suspect it needed warmer temps or, perhaps, it had just emerged from its cocoon.
It was great to read all your comments on my shot of Lewis Lake in Yellowstone. Some of you asked if the forest shown was one that had burned and was now regenerating itself. It is part of the forest that burned in the huge fires in 1988. Since 2/3 of Yellowstone burned at that time, these areas were everywhere. Many now have trees that are about 20 feet tall, both aspen and lodgepole pine.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
