Argyrotaenia velutinana

Observation date: June 30, 2021
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight in a back yard bordered by woodland. I do normally take multiple photos. The one from yesterday I only got 2 shots before the moth was dive bombed by another insect and flew off, not to be seen again. I just don't know why the ones I got were out of focus??
