On this dreary grey morning I thought I liven things up with a few pink moments from the past...this is especially for Mr. Bolder, who has been strangely absent of late.
The top moth is the incomparable Pink Prominent. a super name for a brilliant creature. It is very rare and little known in Ontario, where this one was photographed. We were lucky to have this elusive encounter.
Below that is the aptly named Pink-legged Tiger Moth. It is all white apart from those electric pink (if there can be such a thing) femur sections on the forelegs. It seems to be uncommon in Ontario. At any rate, I've rarely encountered it.
Last but by no means least we have the striking and whacky-looking Pink Streak. Check out those outrageous leg tufts! We have been catching this moth at one location in southern Ontario for three years now, enough to say that it is regular in July at this site. The most we've caught is five. Before this there was just one Ontario record. Moth heroes?
So there you have it...all we can hope for now is a pink sky at the end of this grim day.
