Observation notes: Found this beautiful creation, which I had never seen before on the siding of a front porch below a lit porch light. It's glittery gold fringes around the translucent wings (and tail) reminded me of a tiny angel. It stayed totally still the whole time that I was photographing it within a couple inches of its body, and it never flew away.
