Moth & Sempervivum

I need some sort of moth guidebook at hand to find out what species this is, but regardless, I’m pleased that I noticed it sitting on this dried Sempervivum flower branch. Camouflaged from a distance, its colours blend in well with the surroundings and compliment the withering purple petals, making not only a good photo opportunity, but also a reminder that autumn is upon us.
