Believe it is some kind of moth but I cannot find in any of the on-line guides.
A little over an inch (I think) flits very erratically. This one flew a gauntlet of small birds!
This shot was over 60 feet away from my D500 with my 500pF attached.

Hope some one can help ID this beautiful little critter!

Just looking at the antenna it looks to be a butterfly not a moth?

Try "exposed bird dropping moth"

Could be. I see knobs on the end of the antenna. Thanx for viewing!
