Glover’s Silkmoth: Spotted at the Museum, 6/4/14

The Sculpture Trail at the National Museum of Wildlife Art is a fabulous place to spot all types of wildlife. This morning on my way in to work, I carefully stepped around this giant moth as it sat before the entrance, slowly pumping its 4-inch wingspan. He or she was most likely exhausted from a pre-dawn courtship. Wildlife sightings are so common; our staff keeps a running list on a dry erase board near the back door. The list currently runs like this: coyotes, mule deer, marmot, bald eagle, sandhill cranes, red-tailed hawk, rough-legged hawk, and badger. I think I’ll go add my Glover’s Silkmoth to the list
