Author's notes

I am not very good on moths but I think this is a species of Geometer Moth. Initially it was on some grass near a Meat Ant colony. It did not appear to be bothered by the ants moving near by. It later flew to a low branch a little further away where it almost appeared to be eye-balling a fly.
