Gorgeous photo! I believe the interesting moth is an Ailanthus Webworm. Happy birding to you and your husband!

The colours and patterns are very compatible ... super image Kerri.
Isn't fun to meet the faces behind a blog and share experiences. Looking forward to some feedback from your new aquaintance with the NRV Bird Club. Have fun. FAB.

When I saw your title, I thought "she has never managed to capture both together"
but you did!
Fabulous photo, Kerri.
I'm glad you're doing something exciting with your newfound time/freedom, and the bird club will benefit from your expertise too. I follow A. journal- great blog!

What a great photo! I haven't seen any Ailanthus webworm moths this year, but I am enjoying the photos from other bloggers who have. I love orange. :)

At first I couldn't see the moth as the monarch caught my eye, this is such a wonderful photo.

Razor sharp image with beautiful colors.

Valerie said...

Yep I agree with the others: the Ailanthus Webworm.

Very cool bug. And great photo. You got a TwoFer!!

I had never seen one of those bugs before. Then earlier this year I caught one on my Black Eyed Susans. I was excited to see it had a proboscis like a butterfly -

This is beautiful. It looks like they called each other up before the shot was taking to wear matching outfits :)
