Montana designated the lovely mourning cloak butterfly (Nymphalis antiopa) as the official state butterfly in 2001. Often the first butterflies to emerge in the spring (frequently before the winter snow has melted), mourning cloaks rest on tree trunks and turn their dark wings toward the sun to absorb heat for flight.

colorful animals | leopard moth
Giant Leopard moth: The Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth (Hypercompe scribonia) has a distinct pattern of black rings, reminiscent to those found in its namesake the leopard. The moth's unmistakeable colorings is aposematic, meaning that they are actually "advertising" the bug's unpalatability to potential predators.
The Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth is a moth of the family Arctiidae. It is distributed throughout the Southern and Eastern United States from New England to Mexico. I grew one of these from a catipillar. Not kidding.

(this is what I saw at TN TECH when I took my Silver casting classes!) Rosy Maple Moth - Found in much of eastern North America including Florida. Yes, its bright colors do work for camouflage. Especially when the seed pods (wing-like bladed "helicopter" seeds) of certain maple trees emerge in the spring. The seeds carry the exact same coloring as the moth. (Photographer Wayne Bierbaum)

Sir David Attenborough with a gigantic Atlas moth. The moths, which do not have fully-formed mouths and survive off fat they built up as caterpillars, only live for a maximum of two weeks. They are unsteady fliers and they do not stray far. Their sole purpose of life as a moth is to breed. Atlas moths are found in the tropical and subtropical forests of South-East Asia and are common across the Malay archipelago.

With its astonishing 25cm or one foot wingspan, Sandesh Kadur was heading straight for this giant insect as he drove round the bend in the heart of the eastern Himalayas.

Six-Legged Giant Finds Secret Hideaway, Hides for 80 Years

Six-Legged Giant Finds Secret Hideaway, Hides For 80 Years - Stick insects ("tree lobsters") - A bunch of black rats almost wiped out a bunch of gigantic bugs on a little island far, far away from most of us. A few dedicated scientists, passionate about biological diversity, risked their lives to keep the bugs going. For the bugs to get their homes and their future back doesn't depend on scientists anymore. They've done their job. Now it's up to the folks on Lord Howe Island.
Patrick Honan holds two of the rare Lord Howe Island stick insects. "On Lord Howe, there used to be an insect, famous for being big. It's a stick insect, a critter that masquerades as a piece of wood, and the Lord Howe Island version was so large — as big as a human hand — that the Europeans labeled it a "tree lobster" because of its size and hard, lobsterlike exoskeleton. It was 12 centimeters long and the heaviest flightless stick insect in the world."

Those with the heron as their totem, need to follow their hearts instead of subscribing to conventional wisdom. Their own unique wisdom is synonymous with their path of self-determination. Heron people will amaze the rest of us for their ability to sit patiently, balanced and wise, while those about them act too soon. When responding, finally, in tune with their heart, the heron's languid flight is poetry in motion.
