Bad Luck?


Estigmene acrea Salt Marsh Moth

Salt Marsh Moth, South Padre Island, Texas March 2019

This Salt Marsh Moth (Estigmene acrea) certainly caught my eye. What a showy (and fuzzy) creature. According to some cultures, a white moth is a symbol of illness or death. Good thing I’m not that superstitious (she says as she rubs her lucky horseshoe). Oh, and yes, true to its name, I found it on a branch next to an estuary.
