Morning visitor

I found this moth sleeping on my pillow in the morning.


Such a beautiful feather coat!

And headdress!

I protected her from the cat in a plastic container, and she seemed to want to dance.

"Swing to the right"

She's one of the owlet moths, but I don't recognize the pattern on her wings, so I've sent her in to BugGuide for an ID.

Update: She's a Pickerelweed Borer moth, Bellura densa.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
