Emeralds, Geometer Moths

This moth uses a dead yellowed leaf as a backdrop for its camouflage. It is not an uncommon colour generated by the breakdown products from green chlorophyll. Superimposed over the yellow are old feeding scars (when the leaf was green) by a small leaf miner that have been subsequently colonised by a sooty mold
