Virginia Ctenucha and Japanese Beetle on Milkweed

Hi Steve,
WE doubt if you need an identification of the Japanese Beetle buried in the blossoms in the upper left of the inflorescence, but perhaps you do.  We suspect you want the identification of the Virginia Ctenucha, a diurnal Tiger Moth.  You can see BugGuide for additional information on the Virginia Ctenucha.

Thanks Daniel,
I adjusted the post on my wordpress site to indicate your help identifying this moth.
Thanks – Steve
