Talk about something that blends in quite well to its surroundings, quite a beautiful creature actually. I have only photographed one moth so far this season, it was on the side of the house. Very Happy

Nice picture. One of the Autographa's, I think, possibly Autographa californica, the Alfalfa Looper. Sometimes moths in this group are active in the daytime and can be found foraging at flowers.
