Moma alpium aka Scarce Merveille du Jour

(I wonder what the french part means LOL)

Having a walk over The Little Secret [photoblog.com] I've found also this caterpillar. I brought home, and I thought I'd have to feed it, but in the main day it made its cocoon. :)
days later got this moth. Why not a dull moth.
Because I found it's caterpillar super gorgeous, and this moth even simple, I loved its color. it is not white, neither grey, it is a mix of white, grey and green! I simply loved it even if it is not normal.
I called the tittle of ‘'Not A Dull Moth’', due Sadhya [photoblog.com]'s post of a caterpillar which she said was dull. :) And made me realize to post a not dull moth ;)

      Neither a dull caterpillar nor a dull moth.
      I guess it is a little insulting to call a moth dull. What I should have said was that the moth had plain brown coloured wings. Your moth is certainly not dull.
