Fuzzy Friend


Found this beautiful fuzzy little moth warming up in the morning sun up near timberline while hiking on a cool summer morning. All that fuzz must help keep her and perhaps her little ant friend warm through the night.

    I’m not an expert so I could be wrong but based on the looks of the antennae from this angle I’d say this is a butterfly. The antennae of moths tend to look more like feathers or saw blades. For butterflies they look like clubs. Regardless, it’s a very nice capture, especially with the ant.

    1. Thanks for the correction, I am no expert as well and assumed do to the fuzzy nature of this little guy it was a moth. Thanks for the education it is always great to lean something and have a great community of informed reader. Hope you are having a great day.

        Up until about a year ago I would have called this a month too based on it being fuzzy. Hope you’re having a great day also.
