    My neighbor noticed this when I was outside the house today. I grabbed the camera and tripod and took a few shots. I thought it was pretty unique, especially his antennae (I've only ever seen brown moths). Anyone know what it is? As always, any C&C welcome. I'm still new to all of this.

    EDIT: I did some research. It appears to be an IO Moth. Knowing that I wished I would have waited for it to open it's wings. They have giant blue dots on the underwings. Apparently, from what I've read, it doesn't eat in adult form either.
