Look at this beauty!

Spring has been kind to some of our insects – Kylie came across this beauty the other day up in the bush on Four Mile Lane.

We are pretty sure its an Emperor Gum Moth  (Opodiphthera eucalypti) . There are pics of the caterpillars and cocoons at this link http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/satu/eucaly.html, and both are familiar, but this is the first year that Kylie has seen the moths flying around aswell.

Also saw the first Bogong Moth of the season yesterday!
