Didn't quite make it

This poor critter was found belly-up and gasping for breath just a parking lot away from home.

Species unknown: it is similar to the Red-banded Silver Spinner. Maybe Hugh or Dave will recognize it.


  1. 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.

  2. I'll have to look for more in that area, to see if I can photograph the field marks. Luckily, they're quite docile.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
