Morning-glory plume moth

While gardening this afternoon in the lovely spring weather I disturbed this plume moth, Emmelina monodactyla. She fluttered slowly and settled on the wall adopting its usual T-shape position with folded wings protecting their feathery divisions. The first moth of the year for me.

It is coming!

Saw my first 2013 Pentatoma rufipes (AKA Forest bug) early nymphs 3 days ago.
