The Phantom Hemlock Looper Moth Leaving the porch light on seemed to attract a “flock” of these fellows. The top photo is a female while the  lower one is a male. Once again ID was a bit of a problem. Too many moths look the same. It was quite the experience taking the photos with potential subjects fluttering all around my head and landing anywhere they chose!
