My husband took this picture in the summertime (end of July) and I am having a hard time trying to figure out what this little flying beauty could be. We live in south Ontario, Canada.

Dear Xriss,
We believe your Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae is an Artichoke Plume Moth,
Platyptilia carduidactylus, based on its similarity to the images posted to BugGuide.
