Unexpected beauty - the vestibule moth

Hundreds of people marched in and out of our building vestibule, but my sharp-eyed husband was the one to spot this tiny green moth on glass. We blocked traffic to each take a photo.

He's probably stoned on the chilly air. Low 60s this morning.


  1. Love the interwebs - this little moth is called a bad wing or Dyspteris abortivaria. It's relatively uncommon.
