Day 217: Lunar Moth

This moth disappeared into my room last night and only reappeared this evening on my floor - I have no idea where it has been!  I managed to scoop it up and get it outside, despite it seeming very sleepy and reluctant.  However, the reluctance to move gave me the chance to take a photo of it.  I had to use flash because it was too dusky to use natural light and the background is... interesting!  It was the first thing I could lay my hands on to scoop it up - last year's lunar phase calendar on a postcard.  It does give the impression the moth is studying it - which makes sense really.  Moths like light and a full moon is very bright!
