Au naturel

I posted a photo of this beauty last Wednesday, but it was in the palm of my left hand.  This is how it looked when I found it along the Tollgate Creek trail.  I have the urge to paint one of these on a wall in our home.  It's the White-lined Sphinx.  I hope I get to see the moth later in the summer.


  1. The flower is Lysimachia nummularia. Here is the wikipedia link and photo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysimachia_nummularia

  2. Thanks, Sandy. See my response in previous post. Joe
