Not a very good view for identifying anything but it was the only position I had the chance to photograph it. It was taken fairy high up at a ski resort this past weekend with the temp. well into the 80's, a short distance away the temp reached 120f.

Moved from Moths.

6118 -- Geranium Plume Moth -- Amblyptilia pica
I received another photo yesterday of this species from someone in southern California. The heat wave out west makes our muggy summer weather feel almost comfortable.

Thank you so much for the info Bob. I didn't have much hope for ID from this photo.
