Buck Moths Mating

Barrens Buck Moth (Hemileuca maia) Mating pair, female on left, male on right, on Post Oak (Quercus stellata) with dramatic fall color from Winged Sumac (Rhus copallinum) aka Shining Sumac in the background. This species flies in the fall and lays eggs in a ring on a twig of foodplant that overwinter. In the mid-atlantic and northeastern US this species is generally found in barrens habitats and on mountain ridges that are populated with Scrub Oak. This mating pair was photographed in October at the Goat Hill Serpentine Barrens a Pennsylvania State Forest Natural Area.
