Olive Angle Shades

June 18, 2015

I actually photographed one of these a week previously on the Pine Haven bathroom wall, but it was gone again by morning, and my low light photograph was not great. Last Sunday I got a somewhat better picture of a specimen that had settled on the wall of my collecting bucket. The curled wings are distinctive, but it unfurled them slightly when I poked at it to chase it away, so I scrambled to get a picture of it that way, too.
