Airplane Moth



A Plume Moth, possibly Hellinsia homodactyla.  They're sometimes called "airplane moths", for obvious reasons.  I couldn't get the camera to focus through the glass for a picture of his underside, but it held still while I went outside and took a macro photo of his dorsal side.

Moths are a lot harder to identify than butterflies.
