Thin air, great moth

At over 10,000 feet of elevation, at the Santa Fe ski basin, Santa Fe Co; Heidi and I arrived there late afternoon. There were good birds (we plan on going back), but we soon became mesmorized in an alpine field by numerous moths of the following type:

Gnophaela vermiculata, "Police Car Moth", "Green Lattice Moth"
