This seemed like a really plain moth until I took it's picture, then the gold color really showed up. It was at my porch light and walked right onto my finger for me to take the pictures. I tried to look it up but couldn't get all the pictures to load. I didn't see one like it in those that loaded. Thanks for any information you can give.

Thank You
Thanks for the I.D. It's sad that such a pretty moth is responsible for cutworms, though. (It was still fun to photograph and see those colors pop out!)
