Observation notes: The weather today was rainy and pretty cold around 50 degrees. Here in Plattsmouth, it is normally pretty warm (around 70-80 degrees) but today was cloudy and a little chilly. I was at a car dealership and found this moth in the back of the truck during the day time around 3:00pm. It was not around any plants or anything just hiding on the grey truck.
