Ojiketa Regional Park, Chisago County, Minnesota, USA July 27, 2016 Size: 1 in
Size approximate. Had red on hind wings when flew. Is this a Ruby Tiger Moth (Phragmatobia fuliginosa, #8156)? Seems rather dark, and that's how it actually looked. This is not an artifact of the lighting in the picture.
