We found a moth! He’s inside a cup in the picture, he kept fluttering around my friends kitchen. We will be letting him outside soon.
We don’t know what kind it is but we found it in Western Washington.
I believe this is a kind of Arctiid, but it’s a little hard to make out the markings. Do you have other photos?
Yes, I saw it in the tag! I’m working on it.
YAY! it finally uploaded! Enjoy some silly animated moffs- one of my favorite critters besides fuzzy spiders! This project was inspired by fyeahcutemoths which I highly recommend following! I might upload a few different shots of the moth characters later.
This is cute. Give it some love! :D
Male Clearwing Tussock Moth (Perina nuda, Lymantriinae, Erebidae)
The male tussock moth has scaleless forewings; the female is more conventionally winged. Typically of Lymantriid moths, neither sex has functioning mouthparts and do not feed as adults. Energy reserves are stored from their caterpillar days.

Not quite sure what this guy was, but it was very pretty! I lived in upstate New York at the time (around the Finger Lakes).
This is the Modest Sphinx, Pachysphinx modesta.
