Moth Monday: California on my Mind

I’ve been seeing some interesting day flying moths in the parks here in New York, especially in grassy areas. However I haven’t yet unpacked my camera gear from the move, much less taken it out in the field so it’s lucky I still have a bunch of California moths in the queue, like this beautiful Monopis crocicapitella from Mason Park:

This also happens to be the first such post I’ve done with Snow Leopard, which adjusts the Mac’s gamma to 2.2 instead of 1.8. I’m not sure if this will make any difference. The old photos I’ve looked at don’t show any noticeable change.
