Lunate Zale moth

Zale lunata

Description:

Well, here's a pretty terrible photo of a pretty beautiful moth. Too far away to get a decent shot, but maybe next time ... anyone recognize it?

Thanks very much for the ID, Ashley. I'll be on the lookout for a chance to take a better photo ... pretty moth, chocolate box colors, just too far away!

No that's okay, now I know for next time and will be more confident to suggest it then!

Doing a little research on the link you sent, AshleyT, I think so, too. Would you like to send a formal ID suggestion?

I think it's Zale lunata. By no means an expert though :)
