This summer while pondering a macro shot with my
FZ15 on a tripod this guy landed on my hand.
I eased it in front of the lens and snapped this one.
Never saw one before It does fly, the wings
are enclosed as on a lady bug.

Nice shot. It's a Ermine moth, ailanthus webworm, Atteva punctella and it's a Bad Bug. In this stage it loves your garden and some flowers.

Great info Don, never would have thought that
critter was a moth. Thanks to you I can do a little
research on it.

Donna: thanks for the comment.
