Thanks Jolly! Yes, this little guy kept running around in small circles - perhaps that's why they are called twirler moths!

Nice shot Karen. I know how difficult it is to photograph this insect. It runs around like crazy! I have tried a couple of times but failed to get a good shot.

Maria, we are blessed with a lot of moths & I'm always happy to find one that isn't all brown!
