Tortix moth Acleris forsskaleana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae).  It came through our living room window late one evening, a few days back.

Moths, like this one, that I come across during the night, I now keep in a plastic tub until the following morning when I  photograph them by daylight and then release them.  I find that photographing them by artificial light gives poor results.
