Syngamia florella (Red Waisted Florella Moth)

Tiny 15mm moth visiting a Richardia grandiflora blossom in the lawn of the neighborhood community center park. This is a very furtive little moth, usually glimpsed as it disappears behind a leaf or grass blade. It's also called the orange spotted flower moth.
