[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a very tiny Moth with a light green colour. I shot it while it was hiding among leaves. Fill flash was used. I think it is a Geometer Moth. Experts may kindly advice.

The geometer moths or Geometridae (from Greek geo γη or γαια 'the earth' and metron μέτρων 'measure' refers to the larvae, or inchworms, which appear to "measure the earth" as they move in a looping fashion) are a family of the order Lepidoptera. A very large family, it has around 35,000 species of moths described, and over 1400 species from six subfamilies indigenous to North America alone. A well-known member is the peppered moth, Biston betularia, which has been subject of numerous studies in population genetics. Several other geometer moths are notorious pests.

Hello Ram,
The texture on these wings is very good.
Very simple yet effective composition with bold shapes and colors.
