Yesterday I was in my yard* trying, as I do every spring, to dig up the grass and leave the hostas, when I saw this moth who settled on my greenery. Imagine my delight when it was still there after I'd gone to find the camera!
So I got this sort of okay picture, and sent it to my pal the Moth Man. He just published a field guide to moths. I did some proofreading and copy editing for him, and he gave me a copy of the book. Now, apparently, I am equipped to identify my own moths, and he made me look it up myself! Harsh.
After one attempt which got the response "No - laughs..." I did figure it out.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of The White Speck.
