Moth

Moth
Clint, El Paso County, Texas, USA
August 20, 2015
This moth had an interesting behavior: first it took a vertical position past the highest point in the inflorescence (see image #3) and it would remain still in that posture for over 15 seconds. Then, it would continue feeding on the flowers until my constant approach with my camera made it uncomfortable enough to leave.
