Gypsy Moth by XD-385 Gypsy Moth by XD-385
I found this beautiful little lady out on my front door recently. And yes, it is the FEMALE Gypsy moth that is beautiful to behold. The males are a dull brown. But for a moth, she was very docile. I coaxed her onto my finger and she never tried to fly away once.

However, it's true that the Gypsy moth caterpiller is a threat to trees and is an invasive species. Even so, I could not bring myself to harm this beautiful insect and I let her go.
