Beet webworm moth
This photo was taken with a flash--it's not quite that white.

This photo of the Beet Webworm Moth was taken was taken with the sun shining behind the wings.  It was a very pretty moth but
I couldn't get very close to it so it's very grainy.  The wings are spread here and it gives an indication of the wavy pattern on
the underwing.  I found it in a marsh below the Jordanelle Dam.  As their name implies, they feed on beets, sugar beets, canola,
flax, spinach, and mugwort (according to Bugguide.net).  © Carol Davis, 8-3-2008
