The white plume moth

Description

Cool pretty little moth I found in the high grass. Much to my surprise the wings look like little feathers. I checked it on wikipedia and found out it has 5 feathers on each side. The moth is about 2-3 cm wide. The latin name is: pterophorus pentadactuyla (big name for a small creature)
Took the shot at Roermonds border road, the A73, in the high grass.
