Nature notes and photos from BC, Canada, mostly in the Lower Fraser Valley, Bella Coola, and Vancouver Island.
Nice capture Susannah! I'm "leaning" toward a Red-banded Silverspinner but would have to look closer at the field marks, it definitely has the right feel to it. In Courtenay, there is what appears to be a herd of domesticated RBSs near the local BCLC - while they are chained together, they appear to be quite happy.
I'll have to look for more in that area, to see if I can photograph the field marks. Luckily, they're quite docile.
