More Saint Martin Insects

Over the past few days, I’ve photographed a few new insects. Two are moths, one is a smallish (wingspan about 2″) sphinx moth and the other is the Spotted Oleander Caterpillar Moth (Empyreama affinis), which is the adult of the fuzzy orange caterpillars I found earlier. Interestingly, the pattern of white spots is shared by caterpillar and moth. The last is a very small insect with white tufts coming out of its rear. I’m not sure what it is, but they are quite small. The actual body is probably only about 1mm long.
