18th Feb 2012... Satellite, half & half

Sub - zero temperatures are back for a day or two.
The trap went on for the early evening and a Satellite was attracted to the adjacent wall.
The interesting thing about this particular Satellite were the markings, which were half orange and half white.
The two "satellites" were, 1 orange and 1 white, and the main blotch was a combination of orange/white.
I haven't seen this "hybrid" form before....... click to enlarge.
