The delicacy and translucence of the wings reminds me of an Emerald, but it is brown! Help with ID appreciated.

7046 - Red-fringed Emerald Moth - Nemoria bistriaria
.... and a super photo of the spring form. Later indivuals will be the more-expected green versions. You may actually see both forms at the same time, just to add to the confusion.

 
Thanks, Bob!
Thanks, Bob. Now I will look for the green version, if this cold weather ever abates!
