Leopard Moth, Zeuzera pyrina....it's a big one, almost 3' long
Nathan, Amanda, and I were cutting and removing a dead Flowering Apricot today and Amanda spotted this cool moth. There are actually two Leopard Moths, this one, that's introduced from Europe these past 130+ years, and a native species. The native has spots with white centers so they're easy to differentiate.
