Great shot of this moth. I'll have to check our grape vines to see if any of these creatures live there.

Beautiful moths. At night they sometimes fly inside my room through the window driven by light of my lamp :-)

I recently photographed this moth too but I didn't know what it was called. I'm so glad I dropped by today. Love your photos!
