Emeralds, Geometer Moths

Depending on the size of the leaf and the size of the mouth that bites it and how many bites it takes will affect the final snapshot view. The wings of this geometer moth show recent nibbles with slightly browned edges at the wingtip and an older pair of ‘stained’ bites at the junction of fore and hind wings. Add a few splotches of sooty mold and and you have a design that will fool a predator more than 50% of the time
