I watched this moth all day after it had intially emerged from it's cocoon located partially undeneath a piece of our house siding. After doing some research I was surprised to read it's supposedly not a common species here, so I reported my sighting to a official that records moth's & butterflies in our area. This one was a male according to the research, due to it's antenna width & quite a large one. See the snake face on his wings as part of his camoflage? I thought that was very interesting! :)

GREAT.
I haven't seen one of those in about 35 years. I don't remember the ones I've seen to have so much red, they were more brown and shades of tan (ish).
Thanx.

Thanks Violater! I noticed that the inside opening of the cocoon was quite red too.
