Beautiful Wood-Nymph

Eudryas grata

Description:

Small moth spotted at the gas station. Its out-flung arms caught my eye ... once I had it identified, turns out it's typical of this moth, along with its odd, lumpy head. Beautiful pattern on edges of closed wings. So-so photo quality.

Thank you, Martha, they are rather wonderful. Terrible photo, though, and I haven't run across another ... still looking.
