1/2" long tiger moth. Not sure which species.
Thanks Jacob! That's really interesting - although this guy appeared to be sleeping soundly!
If I remember correctly, the liquid being emitted from the "head" of the moth, is characteristic of Apantesis phalerata, and actually is a poisonous liquid usually seen when the moth is gently squeezed or disturbed. Nice find!
very nice KarenL
