Female - Notch-winged Wave Moth
This looks like a female Idaea furciferata. (eastern range) The males have the more notched-shaped wings. So, you know that this is a female. Nice Shot!

Bob, do you agree with me on this one? ? I have been seeing several and the shape seems quite distinctive.

 
Yes
She is lightly colored and has a prominent mid-line, but she is still very pretty! :)

 
Idaea furciferata
Thank you, Bob.
I see that moth frequently in my backyard.
It always looks "oily" on pictures taken with flash.
Cheers -

Andrew
