  1. Beautiful! Posted 12 days ago
    1. It was so pretty! But, alas, up so high and out of reach. I jumped and tapped my finger a bit under it to get it to fly, and was able to see its stunning underwings - so, so vibrant!! Posted 10 days ago

''Catocala cara'', the darling underwing, is an Erebidae species. The species can be found in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains; it occurs west at least to Oklahoma and north at least to Illinois. It also ranges into southern Canada, but only barely so.
