OMG! Leslie this is just totally awesome, as it not only is my fave combo of floral with "flying flower" upon it but with a possible wing span of a foot! This must have been one awesome moment in time to capture this awesome beauty! If you haven't done so already, as I haven't checked recently, Please submit this photo to our group for next round's SPOTLIGHT FEATURE! I would truly be honored to have this on top of our homepage with the largest display for the largest butterfly or moth I have ever seen. Up until now, the light green luna moth is the largest I have seen. I love your Mantis shots, but this one blows my mind! Just love it! Be sure to submit! Fave and vote and FB and g+1, and tweet

THANKS SO MUCH RANDY FOR YOUR VERY INSPIRING COMMENT ON THIS BEAUTIFUL WHITE WHITCH MOTH! I DID SUBMIT TO THE GROUP. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORD'S OF ENCOURAGEMENT! LES

Spectacular image of a spectacular creature! VF! Looks like it's on cyclamen flowers. Would love to know how this shot came about!

Leslie Crotty replied:

BYRON, I FOUND A SITE ON THE WEB CALLED "BUTTERFLY UTOPIA.COM" WHICH SELL ALL VARIETIES OF BUTTERFLIES AND MOTHS. THEY VARY FROM $50.00 UP TO $140.00 EACH. THEY CAN COST QUITE A BIT, SO JUST MAKE SURE YOU ONLY PURCHASE THE ONE'S YOU WISH TO PHOTOGRAPH! THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND THE LARGEST WINGSPAN ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH OF ANY MOTH. ALTHOUGH THE ATLAS BUTTERFLY MAY BE A LITTLE LONGER IN LENGTH THIS ONE INDEED, HAS THE LONGEST WINGSPAN OF ANY BUTTERFLY OR MOTH. GOOD LUCK, AND BE CAREFUL HOW YOU HOLD THEM, THEY ARE VERY FRAGILE LITTLE CREATURES OF GOD! LES

Description

The White Witch Moth is considered to be the largest moth in the world in terms of recorded wingspans of up to 12". Not much is known about this beautiful moth, except they can be found in Mexico, Central America and the Northern portion of South America. It is a very elusive species, besides having its long wingspan they also have other very distinctive qualities. Their wings are generally a creamy white but also can be a light brown. Black and brown lines zigzag, giving it a fairly regular pattern. Their very unique color and patterns help the White Witch Moth to blend in the trees and assortment of various flowers camouflaging them from any predators, mostly, which are bats. While it's abdomen is white with a black border, pockets can be found in the back of the abdomen, inside these pockets lie a pair of brushers that release a scent signalling the female readtness for mating. The female moth keeps her pockets closed tight until she is ready, then she opens her pockets and exposes her brushes. Males, downwind from her follow the scent and upon finding her expose their own brushes for a couple second's before proceeding to mate with the female moth. One of God's beautiful, unique amazing little creatures! Everyone should have the experience of seeing them close up and personal, it's something they will never forget! Thanks so much for stopping by! Leslie F. Crotty.
