Attracted to the light of my porch, I guess. First noticed it on the morning of 4/6 when it was sitting on the wall. When I went out to look for other moths in the evening it was still there, although it moved a little further. And as of writing this in the afternoon of the 7th, it is still perching on the side of the porch. Not sure which species, but maybe it's a Geometridae?
