Found this guy at the cabin also. Peculiar looking to me.

He's so purdy! It's a Leopard moth http://insects.tamu.edu/extension/youth/bug/bug109.html

That is an interesting moth for sure! The wings look like silky fabric.

Haighr, what a beauty of a moth. Never saw one before. Out here we have ones that look like that except are all white. My Roger Tory Peterson Moth book says that the larvae of Carpenterworm and Leopard Moths bore in various trees, sometimes causing considerable damage. Says wingspan is 2.5 to 8.5, which seems pretty large. Donna

Wow, don't think I'd want to tangle with one that big Donna.
