Marcia, please be careful when moving images.
This is an Erebid, not a Noctuid.

Moved from ID Request.

Maybe the Mottled Snout (H. palparia)? Low certainty, since I'm not familiar with other possibilities in your area.

I agree and Mike Boone photo on MPG. H. baltimoralis is also found in Florida but if I am reading the lines correctly it has a solid black dash near the coasta in the PM area while H. palparia has two separate dashes. Nice specimen, Oliver.
