Spot the Moth

It didn’t flutter so much as it fell with graceful precision. At first, I thought it was a large piece of ashfall, but there is no fire. Maybe some lichen drifted down from an alder tree? No. Upon closer inspection it’s a perfectly camouflaged little friend. Thank you for your visit.

    1. I hope to see more of them. It’s my first time seeing that type of moth as far as I know. Many others are regular visitors. It’s a moth paradise here! The lovely kind, not the “hide in your closet and eat all your woolens kind.” 🙂
