The moths continue to trickle in…

Just 3 moths of 3 species last night which included a new backyard moth for the year, a  Purple-lined Sallow (pyrrhia exprimens).  I guess the numbers will continue to be low until the weather settles down.  I did find a day flying moth at Glenmore reservoir, a Black-banded Orange Moth (Epelis truncataria).  The moth was slightly damaged and the rain had just started again but the photograph is good enough for an ID and a new moth for me.  I’d like to have another chance to photograph this one.
