Emperor Moths -Mating Pair

Emperor Moths -Mating Pair
We went back the next day to the area to see if we could get lucky again and we did happen to see two males. The major difference being there was no female scent to cause them to slow down and let me tell you when the sites and books say they are fast flying they are NOT kidding.
They fly at speeds much like those of a dragon fly, hug the tree lines and are far more flighty then any butterfly or Dragonfly. Its just a dull brownish-orange blur that if you didn't know better you might think was our small bats.
