Texas Wasp Moth

This picture was taken on November 11th, 2008 at the NABA Butterfly Park, Mission Tx. It's hard to believe that this guy is really a Moth and not a Wasp, but it is. The intent of this Moth is to reduce the number of predators that it has and therefore has disguised itself as a Wasp. It is also out during the day, unlike most Moths that are nocturnal.
