Observation notes: Moth was trapped between screen door and security door. We observed for a few minutes and took photographs, then opened door and released it. It seemed to prefer the area at the top of the screen door. Sunny, high humidity, maybe about 85F, heavy rains the day prior. Photographs show top and underside as moth rested on security door then transparent screen door.
