Thank you both, and Carol Snow Milne ~ last summer was the very first time I had ever spotted one of these out in the garden among the numerous Clearwing Hummingbird moths. I was glad to see them return, along with some Snowberry Sphinx moths (another new visitor).

WOW! Congratulations! You found one of my favorite moths to find. WOW! Gorgeous! I found the caterpillar on my property 2 years ago. No moth yet. Wonderful!
