Spring doesn't just bring flowers, it brings insects, too. I saw this little moth this morning and thought the pattern was so striking. The moth is small, only about 1" at the widest part. I like the way the sections of the wing have creases as though it was once all folded up. I think you could make a neat sweater pattern based on this design. I have no idea what it is and have been doing some searching online at www.butterfliesandmoths.com and also www.ontariomoths.com (blog - www.adventuresinmothland.wordpress.com -this blog also has some great bird pics.) There are so many different moths, it's hard to search through them all.
This moth is a little bigger. The wings are like polished wood. You can even see "tree rings" running horizontally. I think I need to buy a proper reference moth book so that I can educate myself a bit more.
