Bent-winged Owlet Moth

Bleptina caradrinalis

Description:

At 6:30 a.m. in the morning, I went into the garage, to put a bag of garbage, into the garbage can. While walking back across the garage floor, I spotted a moth, lying on the garage floor. I picked this moth up, and I brought it back inside my house with me, so I could take some photos of it. While I was taking photos of this moth, the end of its abdomen, started moving. This moth is still alive! The color of this moth, is different shades of brown. This moth, is seven sixteenth of an inch long, and eleven sixteenth of an inch wide.

Habitat:

After I took a bag of garbage out to the garbage can, ( the large garbage can, is in the garage ), I spotted a moth, lying on the garage floor.
