Woods Moth...

What moth is this?
Found in our backyard. As long as a cigarette .
I've seen them before and always called 'em a Woods Moth.

Thanks and yep, that's the one. I had never seen one before but I have seen many of them green tomato worms over the years and had no clue what produced them. Only 0730 and I learned something new today already!

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

We have a large potato field boarding two sides of our property. I suspect I'll see more.
