Camouflaged Moth

21 Jul

I saw this moth on the side of my shop today. I thought it was a leaf stuck to the wall until I looked closely.

There are a lot of leaves that look just that color because of the severe drought we are in. So that makes some pretty effective camouflage for being in the trees. Keep your eyes open and be observant!

    When I turn on the lights on our back porch at night, I see hundreds of bugs and moths, and usually I can’t find two that look alike. The diversity of nature is amazing!
