Chain-dotted Geometer Moth

A mottled leaf, flying in the breeze, caught upon a Juniper shrub at the edge of our sun deck. Later, this Chain-dotted Geometer Moth landed upon it.

Maple Spanworm Moth

This moth, the Maple Spanworm Moth, with its unevenly, scalloped wings and brownish-yellowish colour was found on the windowsill of a gas station yesterday when we had stopped to gas up. I have seen this species of moth before and it has always been at this time of year. It reminds me of an ageing, small autumn leaf with its dark speckled appearance.
