|“Southern Crimson Moth - Pyrausta Inornatalis”
by Karen Slagle.(1) A BetterPhoto Members Favorite!
I found 2 of these Crimson Moth's feeding on the salvia in my garden. As far as I'm able to tell from the internet these moths have not been recorded in this part of Texas. They are only 3/8 inch long. I used a Nikon D300 at 1/250, f9, ISO 400, Nikkor 105 macro lens and a Nikon SB600 speedlight off camera.
