A Bug By Any Other Name.....

But I'd certainly like to know what this is called - this creature that found itself outside my door. I have never seen one before but I thought it was pretty interesting so I told it not to move while I went inside to grab my camera.

UPDATE:  Ailanthus Webworm Moth - thanks to nephew's wife!

Glad it stayed around so you could get your camera. :) I don't know what it is, but I like the coloring.

I saw this a couple days after you posted, but I wasn't able to leave a comment that day. I love the depth of field and his bright colors.

Wow, I'm impressed...it listened to you and stayed there, until you came back with your camera. LOL This is a great shot! I love the red, yellow and black colors on it!
