Is this the top side of your moth below, from the same date? They look very similar.
By the way, I like lots of your images and many of them might be found in this forum article about the Undersides of the Geometridae.

Not sure.....
Just checked the original file photos of both. I made a mistake when I posted the shot with wings closed; it was a day later - Sept 21st 2007, not Sept 20th. Have edited the posting.

Moths sometimes hang around for a couple of days, so it's possible it was the same individual, but can't say for sure. Both photos are from outside our house, but different locations although fairly close together.

Thanks for the link to the forum page on the undersides of Geometridae. Hadn't seen it. Really useful to have!
