This beauty with the black blotches and iridescent blue spots is a Giant Leopard Moth, also referred to as Eyed Tiger Moth. I found him outside the Publix grocery near the Thousand Trails Orlando Nature Preserve Campground and RV Resort. I captured him and took him back to our vacation cabin so I could take these photos.
Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.
Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
