Sighting Record 1210113

Observation Notes: 
My dog alerted me to this moth’s presence in my garden at about noon today. I was out until about 8:00 pm and found it in the same place. It moved a bit since earlier in the day.
Region: 
United States
New Jersey
Hunterdon County
Location Notes: 
On a flowering plant at the side of my house, along a walkway. I first saw it at about noon, and found it in about the same spot 8 hours later. My dog - a bug enthusiast - alerted me to it by barking until I came out to take a look. She loves to eat bugs of all types, and this moth was next to her favorite bee bush. She eats bees unless I’m there to stop her. The fact that she barked to alert me to its presence might indicate that it’s unusual here.
