Well *this* worked out well!

Went out to my car before 7 a.m. and there was a moth on one of the windows. I haven’t seen this kind of moth before, so I shot several frames right away with my P&S. When it didn’t move, I went back in the house for my T2i and shot several more frames from the outside. When I got in the car to go to my weekly Saturday morning breakfast group, I saw how cool it looked from the inside looking out!

I’ve skimmed a couple thousand moth images at BAMONA — http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/gallery — and my best guess is “Tulip-tree Beauty” “Epimecis hortaria,” but let’s see what Roger says.

Confirmed at BAMONA as “Epimecis hortaria” or “Tulip-Tree Beauty”; http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/sighting_details/983341
