Narrow-winged Midget
Tarache augustipennis

It took a while searching both Google and but I finally discovered the identify of this moth.  Not much is known about
the Narrow-winged Midget but it is a Western US moth and its territory extends into Canada.  Its food sources are still a mystery,
I guess. It's kind of funny, I was looking down on the beautiful flowers of the Rocky Mountain Bee Plant, which is one of my favorites,
and I saw what looked like a bird dropping.  I decided to take a few photos and then go in for a closer look, and the "dropping" took
flight.  This was my only decent shot.  © Carol Davis, 2008
