@JulieGoodBloodClark: (In response to comment: I Honestly, can not remember it was like in July/Aug? I probably used the enhanced option on my iphoto program…but otherwise thats it….I just wonder where is the head?)

Interesting, was it just there or did you lure it in a certain way? I believe the head is not elongated like other moths. If you look in the dead center of your photo, it looks like the antennae is resting horizontally, creating the impression that the moth is missing its head.

Thanks again for allowing me to use this spotting as the mission's icon--I am honored!! I have now changed the spotting to the 100th submitionalist's spotting.
