I photographed this small green moth in Bodega Bay on 6 July 2014. From a distance I thought it was a patch of lichen on the wood.
It's a longer story, but I don't have any moth identification books with me right now, so at the moment I don't have a chance at identifying this moth. But I was so taken by the color pattern that I couldn't resist sharing this image with you. And who knows, perhaps someone out there will be able to help with the identification?
