Grapeleaf Skeletonizer Moth - Harrisina americana by 


These day-flying moths are usually noticed when they do a lot of damage to grape leaves in a garden. We have wild grape vines, so the moths are among us here in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA. They are not terribly numerous and so do not do damage that would concern us here. They are broadly found in the eastern half of the USA and up into Ontario, Canada.

This picture was taken June 28, 2011.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
