This pretty yellow and pink Chickweed moth (Haematopis grataria) is small with a wingspan of 3/4" to 1". A male is in the first 2 photos. How do I know it is a male? Because the antennae look feathery on males and females have thread-like antennae. Other than the antennae, males and females look the same.
You can find these moths flying during the day beginning in late spring. They are attracted to lights at night like the ones pictured here. I leave my back porch light on to attract moths.
I found this one on my glass door one night which made it possible to get a photo of the underside.
