PLEASE READ: The Insect Pub Community is moving to Hive next week so this will be the last post for this contest here on Steemit.

Here are my photos for this week.

This is a Geometer moth and is in the Geometriade family. There are over 35,000 species worldwide. The Greek meaning for Geometriade is earth and metron. The caterpillars of Geometer moths are inchworms that have a looping movement which makes them appear as if they are measuring the earth; hence their name.

Geometer moth caterpillar; Inchworm.

These caterpillars serve as an important source of food for birds.

This is the Laudable Arches moth (Lacinipolia laudabilis). I found it resting high up on a brick wall and it was the first time I saw this moth in person so I was happy.

Thanks for stopping by!

All photos are my own.

Then I want to use this day with my following picture to do some advertising for Hive. I am happy that with you another friend of the insects enriches the community on Hive.

Hi @faltermann! Your emperor moth is beautiful! : )

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much!

Great combination of caterpillar and the adult in the post. I'm always glad to learn which caterpillar will become which moth, because for most of the species this is a mystery to me. See you on Hive, right now I'm working on the Week 53 post to publish there.

Thanks @borjan. I am not on Hive yet but will be in the next couple of days. : )

Aha oke :) I'll put the link on the post in a few day ... but I'll publish today ... and I'll put Thursday is Butterfly Day and Insect Day Giveaway- Week 53 in the title
