These were all taken in July of 2010.

Photographed at the Black Sea...



Photographed near Oneşti, Romania. For some reason my future brother-in-law called these "Gypsy butterflies"...



Photographed in Sinaia, Romania...



Thanks for looking.

Looks similar to a gypsy moth, maybe?

It does look more like a butterfly.

Nice photos.  I like nature photos.

Not an expert - but it looks like a butterfly.

Gypsy moths as far I know are only in Japan and the United States. There presence primarily in the North East was the result of an accidental introduction in the end of the 19th century. Some one was trying to make a resiliant silk worm and choose the Gypsy moth to cross bread with the silk moth from China or Japan.

Confident that the Guero will refresh my dyslexic memory.
