Bluish Spring Moth - Lomographa semiclarata


Butterfly? Nope this is a moth! When I found this browsing the web I couldn't believe my eyes! Looks like Spring Azure butterfly! Definitely going to look into these more. They're in the family Geometridae so that's a start.

Tell me what you think of it! I love it!

EDIT: Found this:

Family: Geometridae
Common Family: Geometer moths
Food: The larvae feed on alder, Juneberry, cherry, chokeberry, hawthorn, and poplar.
Emergance: This is a day-flying moth and is sometimes mistaken for a butterfly.
Status: Common
