Just me

 I stumbled upon this little moth taking a break on a yarrow plant while out in the garden on afternoon. This little moth was content  and stayed put even as I moved in to get a nice close look. As I pulled out the camera to take this photo it sure felt like this little moth was looking back at me saying “hey it’s just me… a little moth”.

If anyone out there has the skills to identify this little guy please chime in as “Little Moth” although descriptive could surely be expanded upon.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks to the help of 1nmbirder for assistance in correctly identifying this moth. WordPress readers are the best. Always ready to help in identifying and teaching about all the things we run across outside.

At first I thought it was a Ranchman’s Tiger Moth but it does appear to be a Police Car Moth. We came across these guys while they were feeding on wild aster and sunflowers high up on the trail in Central Colorado.
