Saw this in my kitchen this evening. It’s January in Maine. Found it to be a bit odd to be out this time of year. Any idea what it is? It thought Cabbage moth, but it has grey swirls, not a spot on the wing.
This is not a moth, it is a butterfly. Though the white spot on the forewing is not visible in your image, we are pretty confident this is a male Cabbage White, a species introduced to North America from Europe over 100 years ago. See this BugGuide image for comparison.
