White spring moth

I found this small moth (about a half inch long) on a leaf of my weeping cherry tree one morning when it was still too cool for it to be very active, so I was able to get several shots of it. This common moth is found from eastern Canada south to northern Florida, east Texas and Colorado. Food plants of the larva include apple, cherry and hawthorn.

 

I wish you all a happy Passover and happy Easter. I'm sorry I won't be able to offer my wishes to you individually. I'm still trying to keep my head above water with my workload. I take breaks to do some necessary planting and some photography, but that's about it. As always, thank you for continuing to visit, even though I can't very much for a while.
