“Brad/Karen,
Attached is a picture of a moth that visited the screen door in fish camp. (Irene Lake)
It’s beauty was astonishing!  After 40 years of Canada/Ontario fish camps there is always a surprise.  Another great trip.”  Stan

Turns out this is a Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda).  They have reddish-to-pink legs and antennae, yellow bodies and hindwings, and pink forewings with a triangular yellow band across the middle. Males have bushier antennae than females. As the name implies, rosy maple moths mainly feed on Maple trees.
