Giant Leopard Moth
The Giant Leopard Moth, or Hypercompe scribonia, is indeed giant! It can be nearly three inches long. And with its white body with dark black spots, it's striking as well. It's easy to spot.
I apologize for the fuziness of the photos. We were out of the house and didn't have an actual camera with us, so this had to be done with our cellphone camera. I'll try to get better photos when I spot another Giant Leopard Moth flitting around.
