This little moth is tiny, colorful and eye catching. It's one of many I see among the grasses when Pixie and I go on our evening walks. I've tried to identify it but without a better view of the back I couldn't place it.

    I think moths can be just as pretty as butterflies when they are coloful like this and you caught it perfectly holding on to a blade of grass! Excellent shot!
