Cherry Scallop Shell

Denton has been successfully retrieved from camp. His bunk was a foul mess of stinky feral-boy laundry, and he has traded his correct size & name labelled uniform sweater for a different one in a size larger, but so be it. He seems cheerful and well fed.

George and I stayed at Pine Haven Saturday night. There were many fewer moths to be found, but the ones I did find were delightful. This seems to be a Cherry Scallop Shell (Rheumaptera prunivorata). Wentworth, NH, 8/10/2014. No size reference (it was out of reach) but really quite large.
