Scarlet Tiger moths – Day 15

Day 15 of 30 Days Wild

Around 8pm last night straight opposite my house around 70 Scarlet Tiger moths appeared.

Some flew high around the trees, other fluttered around on the ground, while a few paired up on leaves and grass stems. Plus one that look deformed.

Does anyone know if it is common to see this many together?
