Chimoptesis pennsylvaniana

Photo by Claire Curry

A small but exciting moth at a lighted window!  I don't exactly recall its size, but it was probably a half an inch (or less) long.  It was also quite difficult to photograph.  Every time I tried to take its picture, it either disappeared or my camera had an attack of "CHANGE BATTERY".  But, as you can see, I eventually got it.
