If you saw this picture:
… what would you guess it is?
Surprise! It’s a moth!
A black waved flannel moth, to be specific. Rather cute, don’t you think? I’d never seen a moth that fuzzy before, but I suppose it really shouldn’t come as a surprise. The caterpillars are super furry too!

Yep – surprised me !
How big is the caterpillar/the adult?
The caterpillar is just over an inch at full length, and the moth is about an inch long. Not very big, but not tiny either.
That is incredible!
Glad you enjoyed it!
But for the fact that this is essentially a blog about insects, I would have guessed a dog !
Ha ha! Yeah, you kinda had to guess an insect, didn’t you? :)
OK, I was going to guess “aging Golden Retriever” but that didn’t make sense for the Dragonfly Woman’s blog :-) What a gorgeous moth!
It really DOES look like golden hair, doesn’t it? That’s why I loved this moth when I saw it.
he has 20’s style marcel waves!
I have pictures of my aunt with these:)
Ha ha! Nice! I can see that.
