Moccasin Lake, Winston, Douglas County, Georgia, USA

Size: 20 mm measured
Due to it's small size, I thought this was just another common moth until I took a closer look at it. Moth was about 7 feet up a wall and was easily overlooked from a distance.

fascinating.....
...and great camouflage!

 
Thank you
