[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken a few minutes ago. It shows the moth
- Erannis auantiaria
- family: Geometridae

In autumn, the colours of some moth species are well adapted to those of leafs
and they are well camouflaged in this way. In this case, I saw the moth flying
and then settling on the ground - just on yellow-brown leafs. So, it was hard to detect.
Another species of the same genus, Erannis defoliaria, is also well adapted.
