Hey bugman, spotted this beauty in the drive through at Burger King. What kind of moth is it? Are they common for Virginia?

Royal Walnut Moth

Hi Ryan,
This is a Royal Walnut Moth and they are not uncommon.

Thanks Daniel, some folks over at Reddit also found it for me. Since growing older I have forgotten how numerous the many wonders of this earth are, there were so many different moths that I could not ID it very quickly online
