Moth beauty

Suze, a friend of mine who lives in eastern Blanco County, sent me these photos yesterday and asked if I could identify what'd she found on her property. Oh, my, what a beauty! Was I ever jealous! It took a little work, but I found the species: Grote's buckmoth (Hemileuca grotei). Isn't it just stunning?! I asked if I could share her photos on my blog, and she said yes. Thank you, Suze!
