Pink-striped oakworm moths mating
Q: Found these two on my walkway one evening. Thought it was a small frog then noticed the purple and two sets of eyes as they moved slowly. Nose appears large for size.
A: Wow…great catch!
It’s two pink striped oakworm moths enjoying a private moment. The moths are harmless, as are the caterpillars.
I found a delightful description of the metamorphosis at Hilton Pond Canter.
