Sighting Record 1193043

Observation Notes: 
This moth was very busy dining on the pink chrysanthemums at our front yard mailbox in the early afternoon yesterday. The weather was partly sunny. The moth didn't seem to mind me taking close-up photos. I referenced my Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America and found the above name of this particular species of Lepidoptera. This is the second moth I have photographed in our yard that tends to come out during daylight hours. (The other moth photo I submitted was of an Eight-Spotted Forester Moth some years ago that was flying around our Comfrey and Catnip, also in our front yard.)
Region:

Location Notes: 
About 1.5 to 2 miles west of Downtown El Reno traveling on Route 66, turning left or south at the Correctional Workers Federal Credit Union, continuing two blocks south, then turning left, or east off Reformatory Drive onto Stone Glen Drive. (If you tried to turn right, or west, on Stone Glen Drive, you would wind up in a ditch by a fenced field where cattle graze on federal land used by the correctional facility here in El Reno, Oklahoma.)
