Artist's Description

The rosy maple moth (Dryocampa rubicunda ) is a North American moth in the Saturniidae family.They have reddish-to-pink legs and antennae, yellow bodies and hindwings, and pink forewings with a triangular yellow band across the middle. Males have bushier antennae than females. As the name implies, rosy maple moths mainly feed on Maples, particularly Red Maple, Silver Maple, and Sugar Maple. Sometimes these moths become pests on maple trees. I had only heard about, but never seen one of these striking moths until about a week ago, but had no camera then. Thankfully, this beauty was sleeping on a leaf below my porch light. I got him to climb onto my hand and he sat for a while and smiled for the camera. I took this on my porch in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and my new Nikon 105mm macro lens.
