Observation Notes: 
The moth was outside my door which is on an upstairs balcony, on door sill beside a big flower pot with a dormant lavender plant in it. Sunny cold windy day. The moth stayed on my hand while I moved around and went inside to get camera and wouldn't leave my hand unless I purposefully guided him off. He readily climbed back on after I put him on the piece of my felted wool for photos.

I found it while raking leaves. It was just barely alive but not noticeably injured. I'm thinking it was because of the cold that it was on its way out. Very beautiful but sad that it was dying. I put it on a paper towel bed on my patio and it passed by morning.
