Black Witch Moth

A large Black Witch Moth rests under the eaves in Hawaii

This Black Witch Moth spent the day resting under the eaves of the house. The wingspan is a good six inches and it was in perfect condition, not like some of the battered individuals I’ve seen before.

      They’re come and go here. In Hawaiian folklore, this moth is considered to represent the soul of a recently deceased loved one returning to say goodbye. Can’t say I’ve noticed any such correlation.
