Another Purple Aster Admirer

Another critter attracted to the purple asters in my rural Missouri wildflower garden is an unidentified Moth species (species unknown, but similar to the Colona moth). Moving about the wildflowers, he continuously worked at collecting nectar from the purple flowers:

I gotta say that this fall, my colorful wildflower garden has been a “critter magnet”. :o)
