While visiting family in Reston, Virginia, on Mothers Day 2015, we spotted this on the patio door. None of us had seen anything like it before, but knew we could count on WTB to enlighten us. Many thanks in advance.

Dear Curious,
This through the glass view provides a very interesting perspective on the Eight Spotted Forrester,
Alypia octomaculata, a diurnal Owlet Moth.  MOBugs has a very nice narrative on the Eight Spotted Forrester.
