Crazy Warren County Moth-Thing

Crazy Orange Moth Thing

Yesterday afternoon, I stepped outside the office to make a phone call and saw this crazy moth-thing clinging to a cinder-block wall.  My cellphone photograph fails completely to capture the creature’s strikingly vivid orange colorations and its size.  The moth’s about 2 – 3 inches in length, overall.  Big and strange-looking.

Edit: It is a Regal Moth – http://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.asp?identification=Regal-Moth. Some of the areas that look yellow in the picture above were a sort of light olive-green.
