Fits the description. The fury antennae got me hooked. For some reason I like moths with the fury antennae.

I really struggle with these. Chose Coronis based on color, flight season, and more elongated wing tips, but am completely open to being wrong. The submarginal band on the hindwing disc does look a bit more like Callippe....

Sucktastic, but no flash. A serious disadvantage of the 6D. This colony seemed to be using the Pisolithus as a roof, something Christian said he'd observed numerous times. Will have to keep an eye out for this and try to get better pics of the ants next time. Wonder if there's some kind of an association or, as Christian speculated, they just like the way the fungus loosens the soil.

Description

About 6-8'. Stayed on the surface for at least 10 minutes, swimming slowly, unconcerned by boat. Had white marks on head area (see other photos), could also be scarring.Thinking maybe basking shark from relaxed behavior, but dorsal looks more swept back (salmon or great white-ish).
8/23 Update: Based on raging debate on Blue Ocean's Facebook page, now convinced it is a great white shark. Apparently this female was injured some time ago and has stayed in this general area.
