Butterflies and Moths of Wisconsin




It's summer in Wisconsin, which means the butterflies and moths are looking good. D'Arcy tells me that she spotted one at the bank the other day and just had to capture it, no matter how difficult the shot. An employee came out to ask her whether she needed an ambulance.
D'Arcy knew the names of all the ones in the slide show:
1. Sphinx moth
2. Painted lady
3. Eastern tiger swallowtail--male
4. Eastern tiger swallowtail--female
5. Mourning cloak

--but the one below is still a mystery. Anybody recognize it?
