Found on Kroger wall near light, early am. Not the best picture, but it's a regional representative for GA.

I Wish All My Photos Were This Good....
... this is an excellent photograph.

Thank you
I really appreciate that, especially coming from you Bob. I don't think it's a 'bad' pic, I just thought the lighting was off and I took it with my old 1.6 megapixal Olympus, so it wasn't as sharp as I was hoping for on a moth with such a busy pattern. But thank you very much for the kind words. It means a lot.
