Could It Be?

I normally don't display images of feces, even if in the form bird guano. But, I was thinking ... wait. What? Could it be? Yes, it is. That's a moth! Why, it's none other than the pearly wood-nymph.

Isn't camouflage a wonderful thing? Tigers have stripes, chameleons can change color, walking sticks look like sticks. This bug was dealt a rough hand, though. Of all things to be disguised as ... It beats getting eaten, though.

Thanks for the photo, Sean.
