Submitted by: bobscafe
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This tiny moth flew into our patio area this morning, and landed on a container beside me. I grabbed the camera and took 10 or 12 pictures before it took off. It sat patiently while I turned the container to get the pictures I wanted, then sensing I was done, it flew off.
