So, once again the Bicolored Sallow visits my house in
Taylorsville in October. This one was resting between
 two bricks near the porch light for warmth (48 degrees).
 I never get tired of seeing them
because they really are pretty.
They're my little October jewels.  Carol Davis 10-23-2020

This little worn Bicolored Sallow was resting near my porch
 light this late October day. The photo below shows one
 in its complete splendor. Carol Davis 10-31-2017

I found this beautiful moth at my house in Taylorsville, Utah,
trying to draw a little heat from my front porch light.  This is
a cutworm moth that eats just about anything you've got in
the yard.  Cutworm moths can be pretty but very destructive.
