This moth, roughly the size of a quarter, was looking into the Meadowlands Environment Center on Saturday during BirdFest, and hung around for the folks at the 11:30 a.m. Butterfly Walk and well into the afternoon.
We knew it was a moth, albeit an unlikely one, but did a brain freeze trying to remember what kind. We promised we would post the answer.
Here goes: The answer is… It is a Plume Moth.
