Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

I Need Your Help With an ID~

I took only 2 images of this beauty before it slipped too far away.  It was flying under the hawk nest tree near some brush in the middle of the day.  I am thinking it is more of a Moth type, than a Butterfly, but could not get a good look at it's Antenna.  I viewed a site with lots of identifications, but you must open each name individually and it was taking FOREVER...~


  1. I think what you have here is a Large Wood Nymph. Take a look here to see if you agree.

  2. Coy was absolutely correct, it is indeed a Large Common Wood Nymph Butterfly. Thanks Coy, appreciate you helping me out!


I love and enjoy each visitor to "Red Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond." I truly appreciate those who have become followers to my blog and really am encouraged by the wonderful comments. I also enjoy leaving comments and would like to ask that you please make your blog word verification free! You still have top security settings and you still have control over the comments published. It would make it so much easier, if you would consider doing this. I switched several months ago and am thrilled with the results.
FYI if you leave ANONYMOUS comments, they will never get published, so please don't waste your time~
