Leopard Moth

Leaving the church today, one of my parishoners–who happens to have an excellent eye for beautiful things in nature–called me out to see this beautiful moth. She (the moth) was napping in the sun and I managed to get these pictures of her. After looking for her on line, it turns out that she is a Leopard Moth and even though I’ve never seen one before, and I think that my sharp eyed parishoner hadn’t either, they are not uncommon in the southeast.
