Pale dagger moth

Bright dagger moth

Looks like the yellow shade can vary a bit, some are very vivid yellow!

I'd never heard that tale about the fuzziness meaning a cold winter!

The moth is still pretty...subtle, but really extensive markings...

Wow! As many woolly bears as I see each year, I don't think I've ever seen a moth like that. Most of ours are pale tan or white...unless they're Cecropias, Lunas or Polyphemus moths, anyway.
