Common Moth

Common Moth

I don't know the variety. This little guy was not an offical part of the butterfly festival. Therefore, I was probably the only one to photograph him.
Extremely tiny (about 1/2 inch), he almost totally disappeared into a bump on the leaf when his wings were down. Even with his wings up, he was very difficult to spot. My guess is that he accidently got brought into the Conservatory with the plants for the festival.
