Brown-shaded Gray Moth by rhoing

Brown-shaded Gray Moth

Spotted on the frame around our front door mid-afternoon. Fascinating (as well as discouraging) how quickly the focus falls off with the 60mm macro lens at f/3.5.

ID’ed as “Iridopsis defectaria” or “Brown-shaded Gray Moth” at [ BAMONA ] [ BugGuide ]

@marlboromaam Of course. As long as you tell me you're pinning, you don't have to ask and wait for a reply. :)
