I found this peculiar moth on my front door (which is why the photo is so strange–I was photographing the moth on the glass).

It took me 3 days to identify it, which is unusual for me. It’s called the Beautiful Wood Nymph. One of its host plants is Virginia creeper so it’s very clear why it’s at my house.

Many commenters remark that because the moth folds its wings when resting, it looks like bird poop. I think it looks just lovely!
