We need help, dan. Your moth is a little longer displayed, like when Marilyn Monroe's skirt blows up.

It's definitely more similar to Gerardo's than mine, but it does remind me of this too. Maybe the same family?

Thanks, Lauren, Cris and Sergio. I really wanted to have done better photos. But she landed on the leaf for a few seconds and disappeared in the air.
