Geometer moth

Not the best of photos but because its Spring and we have been watching the progress of this little fellow every morning while we read this book... (which by the way has a lot of nature study in it; we really recommend books by Elizabeth Enright.)
And here are the words of that song made famous by the late Danny Kaye(now I'm really showing my age(!))

Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
Eight and eight are sixteen
Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two
Inchworm, inchworm
Measuring the marigold
You and your arithmetic
You'll probably go far
Inchworm, inchworm
Measuring the marigold
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are
