A Monarch Butterfly possibly?
Thank you, I just found out what it is from a website where you can ask by email and they will respond if you have a picture to send. whats that bug.com. It is a moth. (Ailanthus webworm moth - Atteva Punctella) I saw no wings, but they must be tight to the body. It is about 3/4 long, 1/4 wide. Pretty facinating to see and watch.
You always have the best pictures, Dee! I was going to guess moth. Seems I've seen those somewhere before, but wasn't sure. Thanks for the brain teaser!
Leenda, you made me laugh. This is so much fun and I wish I could meet you all. or (ya'all.) I'm a yankee from Minnesota. (:
Could I ask the name of the website you used? I am helping 4-Hers with their entomology project and occasionally they catch insects that we just cannot find in any of the books we have and have not found them on the reference websites we use. We could take a picture of the pinned insect and send it in for help. Thank you.
Yes, I would be more than happy to tell you the website.

Happy teaching and bugging!
Y'all (or youse guys as they say in parts of St. Louis!) So....Minnesota? What brought you to the heat and humidity, Dee? I've never been there...yet. Someday I plan to see each state and what it has to offer. I've got a few left, though! Is photography a hobby of yours...because you really do take great shots.
Thank you. I never thought this would lead to writing emails back and forth! You would love Minnesota with all of its lakes and the wonderful part of Northern Mn. Wish we were back for just the summers. We grew up there. My husband job ended up here. Was Malone and Hyde at the time.
Yes photography is one of my passions. I strive to learn all that I can. Not too many years left now. Would not Joe Creig be a great teacher? He is much too busy though. Dee
Minnesota sounds wonderful. We may just go there someday soon. But Dee,what do you mean, "not too many years left?" Sounds like you're young, but if not in years, at least in heart!
I guess we're taking up too much room "emailing" here, so until your next pix post, have a great weekend!
Thanks for the name of the website.
