A Tiny Moth

(So glad to be back — had computer problems — ugh!)

This little moth could easily stay hidden among the plants. It took a while to identify it — spotted-beet webworm moth (Hymenia perspectalis) — with a wingspan of 2 cm.

It was one of the few moths visiting the heath asters in my butterfly garden. Only three monarch butterflies, an occasional orange sulphur were the other visitors (besides an occasional bee).
