Buck Moth we believe

Dear Julie,
This is a Moth but we can’t see enough detail to provide you with a definitive species (or family) identification, but we believe this may be a Buck Moth in the genus
Hemileuca.  One highly variable species, the Elegant Sheep Moth, is pictured on the Moth PHotographers Group site.  It is also possible this might be a Tiger Moth in the subfamily Arctiinae.

Location: Bend, Oregon
