Scopula Moth

This tiny (probably only about a centimetre with wings fully stretched) moth was resting on a column on my patio (surprised it didn’t attract the attention of the cat, but maybe too big and fierce for him!). Grabbed the 24-200mm and took a few snaps in case it decided to fly away.

Geometer moth, Nerja

So far, I have narrowed it down to a Geometer moth (only around 23,000 species) and then a bit further to one of the Scopula sub-species. Quite a pretty little moth.
