July 10, 2014: Chickweed Geometer

While walking along the trails at the Park one invariably will flush up small moths.  Most are quite nondescript, but this Chickweed Geometer has a splash of color.  It is a member of the Geometridae family and is found throughout the U.S.  The wingspan is only 20-25mm (less than 1 inch).  Adults are on the wing from May to October. 6/24/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
