We usually see one of these little guys at some point during the summer. Apparently, this year they decided to hold the family reunion at the Cox Front Porch Motel. There were nearly a dozen of them.
Giant Leopard Moths are bright white moths with black spots mixed with iridescent blue. The females die shortly after laying their eggs on broad-leafed plants. The eggs develop into larvae. These particular larvae are fuzzy caterpillars. The kind kids like to play with. While caterpillars, they feast on dandelions and violets, and hibernate in the winter.
