Congrats Jonathan for the spotting of the day.
It is my pleasure, Craig.... I found this in my back yard in San Jose, it is so small but from time to time, I go out to see what's new, this time I found this interesting moth.
It's a beauty! Thanks for showing it off so well Jonathan.
The reflexions are really something, and that is hard to bring in the picture.... So I am glad you all enjoy it.
Thanks for the commnets....

Great Colour combination...
