Asked Politely

Weather has allowed for yard work lately. A cream-colored moth has occasionally landed on the grass near me.

  Today, I figured it was asking to be the prominent feature in one of my blogs. Even with my permission to take its picture, I still had to sneak up on it.

It seemed odd that everytime I’ve seen it, it’s landed in the grass where it was anything but camouflaged.


I identified the moth as a Least-marked Euchlanena. They fly here in southern Illinois late May into June. The caterpillars are inchworms and feed on oaks and sugar maples.
