Anyone good with these who wants to take a stab at this one? Came to the light at night.

Great Photo
John,
I seldom post any of my plume photos because they are simply not good enough for an ID. These moths are so spread out, I can't find an angle where all parts a equidistant from my focal plane. However, everything in yours is in focus. Your WB looks correct and your flash didn't torch the highlights. In other words, great photo!

You mind sharing how you shot this? Thanks
Robert

It's one of the few plume moths that I have had that wasn't completely folded up. I hope that it can be IDed/confirmed.
