    Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve been around here - my apologies. I don’t always have the right kind of energy for social media. But I miss you guys and your lovely photos and friendly comments, so I’m forcing myself back with a couple beauties from National Moth Week this year. The first one is a Blinded Sphinx, Paonias excaecata, which I was delighted to see show up at my lights as I rarely see sphinx moths at my house. I was glad BugGuide had an explanation of that odd name: “speculative origin - the small blue spot (or "iris") on the hindwing (not visible in my photo) has no central black spot (or "pupil") - and is therefore "blind”.” The second moth is a Hollow-spotted Plagodis, Plagodis alcoolaria, whose striking markings caused me to capture it for photos, whereupon it promptly disappeared into my house. I was very relieved to find it alive and well a couple days later, and also that I could convince it to settle down for this photo.
