A visitor

This amazing creature hung on the screen door.

She is an Io moth. (Yes, "she" is probably a "she" according the the linked article.)

She had no intention of moving when we moved the door. It seems likely she is entirely nocturnal. But for her own protection we urged her on with a twig. She spread her wings, reluctantly.
