Green!!
I didn't see any green.... oh well, I never was very good at moths. :)

I can't tell you how many of these I shot before capturing the rich green of one specimen. It's easy for lighting to knock the green out, but these moths sometimes arrive devoid of green.

There a minor green wash -- look carefully.

 
Yes
Thanks Gord I did see it after you mentioned it, but not before. & Thanks for the comment, Bob, I'll keep trying even though I don't have the best track record in the moth dept.
