Virgin Tiger Moth

bright black/yellow moth with orange hindwing, on glass

Another Friday evening moth from Jaffrey: Virgin Tiger Moth (Grammia virgo). I've more often found the big tiger moths at the end of their lives when they're in somewhat bad shape. This one flew in actively, fluttered near us for a few minutes (drawn to porch lights), then flew away.
