Here are my photos for today of the Chickweed Moth.

This pretty yellow and pink Chickweed moth (Haematopis grataria) is small with a wingspan of 3/4" to 1". A male is in the first 2 photos. How do I know it is a male? Because the antennae look feathery on males and females have thread-like antennae. Other than the antennae, males and females look the same.

You can find these moths flying during the day beginning in late spring. They are attracted to lights at night like the ones pictured here. I leave my back porch light on to attract moths.

I found this one on my glass door one night which made it possible to get a photo of the underside.

Thanks for stopping by!

All photos are my own.

Amiga @whatisnew he ganado en ausencia jajaja, maravilloso. Esto es increíble.
Felicito a todos los ganadores, !! hurra por el concurso!!
Ni te imaginas las que paso, buscando. Las mariposas me huyen. Estoy perdida, ya los bichos no me encuentran a mi y yo menos a ellos. Pero seguiré buscando.

Friend @whatisnew I won absent hahaha, wonderful. This is incredible.
I congratulate all the winners, !! hooray for the contest !!
You can't imagine what happened, looking. The butterflies run away from me. I am lost, the bugs no longer find me and I less them. But I will keep looking.

Surprise, Surprise Cheerleader! Make sure you walk very slow when you see a butterfly. That's the spirit...keep looking! Thanks always for your support, even without insects. Hugs!

Ooooh Nice !!!
Love that flower.

Hi Anne! Thanks for your entry! : )

That plant is beautiful with that little bee, they make a beautiful picture. Greetings @annephilbrick.

Thank You..!

Hello @whatisnew love the moths on glass doors and windows.
Unlike Butterflies, Moths will stay still o.o

Congratulations to all the winners this week !!
I still haven't captured any new butterfly/insect images yet...... I was stalking a couple of bees but they were shy =/
Ok lets see if this works O.o !DERANGED =p

Hey Bud! I have missed you! So nice to see you again. : ) I will never forget that awesome photo of your moth. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Thanks for stopping by and keep stalking the bees. : )

Yeah I'm out of hibernation mode for the most part. Weather has been warming up last couple weeks.
I was overcast and cold today tough so I didn't get out to take photos. I did transplant that bush with the purple flowers( some type of verbena I think) today. It will be going active soon, got to get it ready for my Skipper's =)
Also picking up some photogenic pansies.

I am glad to hear that you are out of hibernation. I am still in it, very deep in it. Can't wait to see your skippers and don't forget about the bees. : )

Greetings @cromio, I remember this image of your moth. Is beautiful. I can't get insects either.

Thanks @gertu
I got one for next week =)

Thanks @belkisa758! See you soon. : )

Gracias por tus buenos deseos @belkisa758, estoy tratando de hacerlo.

Why is it named chickweed moth? Does it have a relationship with chickweed?

The caterpillars of this moth eat chickweed, stitchwort, knotweed and clover. Sorry about not adding that info. Thanks for your support as always @goldenoakfarm! : )

Pretty little bugger :-)

I think so too, especially for a moth. : )

Saludos amiga @mllg, que bueno!! comenzaste con una bella oruga. Felicitaciones !!

Greetings friend @mllg, how good !! You started with a beautiful caterpillar. Congratulations !!

Howdy Butterfly! Great job on the contest again and I really like that night shot! So most people don't want to attract moths but you TRY to attract them!

I sure do try to attract moths. I will leave the light on for your too. LOL!

Haha! I love that phrase. Hey did you ever get more snow or just the one? Sounds like a record breaking mild winter up there!

Mi querida @whatisnew lamento decir que no encontré nada para el concurso. El único que me encontró a mi fue este pequeño Gecko bebe, que se metió a mi cocina en la noche.

My dear @whatisnew I'm sorry to say that I didn't find anything for the contest. The only one who found me was this little baby Gecko, who went into my kitchen at night.


Aw, the Gecko is so cute. At least you got some kind of visitor. LOL!

It is true!! jijijii
