Geometrid Moth

brown striped moth

This beautiful mid-sized moth was resting on the trunk of a tree by some Russian olive trees
 on Antelope Island.  Carol Davis, 5-31-2009

According to Bugguide.net, this moth feeds on Begonia flowers and bramble. It was
just hanging out at my porch light in Taylorsville, Utah. Carol Davis 6-10-2008
