We were trying to find insects at Promontory Point in Box Elder County, Utah, and my brother
kept telling us that there were some big moths flying all over the place. We were too busy
photographing Hanging Thieves (robber flies). © Carol Davis 8-20-2017
Later as we were driving along I saw this mating pair. That was a neat find. Just after that
we found another female perched on a bush (that's the first photo). The female in this
photo is shy and hiding behind a dead flower. Sage is their host plant and there were
plenty out there. © Carol Davis 8-20-2017
