Ceanothus silkmoth

This furry creature has taken up residence at our back door off and on for a month now. Not sure if there is just one or several taking turns.

When my friends were out last month, they named her Lunesta. 🙂

    The warm colors really make this shot. I’ve enjoyed following your blog since I joined earlier this year.
    What camera are you using?

      Thanks Dee Dee! I shoot with Canon. I have the 20D, 30D, 40D, 60D. I shoot professionally so I have a plethora of Canon lenses as well. I don’t get into the Canon/Nikon war. I learned on Canon therefore I shoot Canon. My dad shoots with Nikon so that makes for occasional heated discussions. 🙂

      Thanks Wiley! I’m a butterfly gal, but I thought this moth was gorgeous too. I’d like a comforter in that wing pattern.

    Leah, your photo is lovely. Would you allow me to share it with my Pinterest followers? I have a board where I pin images of butterflies and other insects and I want to pin your photo there. I would, of course, give you full credit and link to your blog. If you agree please let me know what you’d like me to put as credit and your link. Thank you.

    Absolutely beautiful. I love the contrast of the butterfly with all it’s finery, and the humble wood planks.
