Bronzed Cutworm Moth-Nephelodes minians

I guess I am a fan of these, at least in our yard, as their larvae eat grasses so save me some mowing…well, I am sure not much mowing really. But for those who grow grain crops  probably not fans.

  1. Your previous post may have primed me to see an ultra-wide frog across the middle of the frog in the first picture.

    That second photo, the front facing one, is a really interesting perspective. It’s not how I would have pictured it after having seen the top down photo.

  7. The first view was expected, and very nicely done. The second view was not expected, and sort of horrifying.

  8. Although some of the moths don’t always have the flashy markings like others, this is still a beauty with its muted earthly tones and markings. Nicely done, Steve.
