While out taking a leisurely stroll awhile back, I was buzzed by this flying thing. My first impulse was to hit it with my camera. Then, I realized the camera cost more than my Yugo and decided to spare it's life. It is a Polka-Dot Wasp Moth (Syntomeida epilais). While it looks rather sinister and dangerous, it is quite harmless and very beautiful. Biology wasn't my strong suit, but I am still having trouble with the Wasp-Moth connection.
