Leaf Moth

Posted by Picasa

This moth was on my screen door. It looks as much like a leaf as the ones in the Butterfly House at Callaway Gardens. I had to take the picture several times because the camera kept focusing on the screen instead of the insect. I had the same problem photographing dragon flies. It is interesting that this moth's antennae are hidden by being pointed under the wings, presenting a more leaf-like appearance.
