Leopard Moth
I'm so excited to find this picture. I took a pic of one in Newark, Delaware and have been trying to find it on this site. Thank you sooo much! This is the first time I ever saw one. What a beautiful moth!

giant leopard moth
One entered our house in Vigo County, Indiana, 5/28/2012, and I photographed it. Thanks bugguide.net for the quick ID. Afterwards I could find it in Covell's guide.

saw my first one
in Shawano County, WI this morning amongst 30 Rosy Maple moths. This is a striking black on white dotted moth. Wish I could see the abdomen and the irridescent blue spots!

Leopard Moth Ft. Worth
I found one on my Fort Worth Texas doorstep this past week, with the end of the wings damaged. I picked it up thinking it was dead, but she moved her legs a bit so I put her in a ceramic tray off the ground. She laid some blue eggs in the tray that I found this morning.

I found this moth on the front steps of Wesley Chapel UMC near Newton, NC. I put in my bug box to be identified at school. Only one like this I have ever seen.
