I found this moth on my fence the other day when I was taking some photos of my dog. I ran inside quickly, hoping he woulden fly away and grabbed my macro. a few mins later I got this shot.

I have no idea what kind of bug it is.

It looks to me like a Copper Skipper, which is a butterfly, not a moth. :)

This is actually some kind of skipper. They are in the butterfly family Hesperiidae. We have them everywhere where I live and they are so cute!!! This is an awsome shot!
