Dear ”bugman”,
I saw this thing outside of my house in March. I have NO idea what this thing is, but I’d love to know. I’ve been trying to google it but I can’t find it. I want to know the exact name of it 🙂
Thanks!

Dear Curious Girl,
This is a male Ceanothus Silkmoth.  Thank you for including information that the sighting occurred in March since such appearances are generally very much tied to climate conditions like temperature and humidity.
