"Shield-backed Cutworm Moth"
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.

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