Well, now I'm a bit confused. Alan, whatriveristhis, says a moth rests with it's wings spread and a butterfly with it's wings closed. This is how I first found this moth, with it's wings closed. Then it dropped off, onto the ground and then flew to the rose garden. Where the last 2 shots were taken.
Thanks so much to CarolG, Sue118, Rayme330, digital_boi, franken and Lillian for their wonderful UA's. I was totally amazed at the reaction to this moth.
