Eastern Bluebird with Moth

I've been very busy lately, so haven't been able to post much. I am still shooting whenever I can though, and the increased activity of nesting Bluebirds makes a great subject.

 

In this case, I was frustrated by the lack of natural perches. So I drove to some nearby woods and found some dead branches. I wedged a branch into the post where an active nest box was mounted and they began using the perch within fifteen minutes. I waited quietly in the car and this female eventually showed up with dinner. It looks like a moth, but could also be a light colored butterfly.
