I wonder whether this species is lighter colored in the spring and darker colored in the fall?

It's the flash
It's the flash that's making it look so light (colors washed out). I just photographed this particular moth today, and the "flashed" images I took looked just like above, radically changing the colors

 
No flash
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, but I never use the flash outside. He really was that light :)
Congratulations on getting moth pictures in March! I haven't seen any yet - hopefully soon!
