Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was rainy & cool. Near a pond the moth climbed onto my son's boot & stayed put as he walked, then flew to other son's jacket where it stayed until we lured it onto a leaf and put it on a bush. The moth was actually light orange in color though the close-up photo appears yellow. Added 2nd photo which shows color more accurately.
