Description:

This has always been a favorite, and I was pleased to have one show up on my Frostweed (Verbesina virginica) on a cool morning and pose for some photos. I fired off a bunch of photos in two sessions, and as (bad) luck would have it, my flash card corrupted during the middle of the second session. Urrghh--I've seldom had that problem. Went back for another flash card, got to the moth and it took off, having warmed up. Oh well, I did get a few decent ones.-BugGuide account--Atteva punctella
