Earlier I spotted a few very bright wings flutter underneath my table, belonging to this gorgeous Moth. Identification was very easy thanks to the large border at the bottom of both fore and hind wing. It is a female Bordered Beauty, Epione repandaria
how I'd love a macro lens to get some of the finer detail on this Moth, like the fine hairs on its antennae.
The Bordered Beauty Moth, (Epione repandaria), has a border on the bottom of its wings, which on the female's wings narrows together to a point at tip of forewing. ,
The male's markings are slightly different in that the dark band at the bottom does not narrow at the tip. The male Bordered Beauty Moth is also slightly smaller

Once I took it outside, it decided that it the ground would be the safest place. I had a hard job of removing it from there, so that I would not ride over it on my way to/fro the planter with bird food.
Unknown Micro Moth. Probably one of the many little Grass Moths. I haven't had time yet to search for its ID today. Hopefully I can discover more this next week(end) I was about to release this Micro when I spotted the Bordered Beauty. It had come inside the door, looking for a safe and sheltered place to get some rest.
It is our habit of leaving windows and doors opened slightly, so that we have a letterbox of fresh air coming into the room, which attracts the Moths as much as the lights indoors.
