I’ll begin with my apology to Avalus for taking so long to post this photo of a beautiful moth (falter). I received it in August and promptly misplaced it. It popped up at me today in an unexpected place, and I am happy to post it at last. You might say that I faltered in posting this falter.

Here is a black and white moth on the bark of a birch tree.

    No need to apologize, voyager. You had more important issues.

    A chance find and as you can see my cam hat problems focussing. In German falten means to fold (like folding paper or laundry), so you could say it’s a folder. :D
