This is a Yellow Collared Scape Moth that I found today on a walkabout that I brought in for a focus stacking session staged at 5X magnification.

According to our Department of Natural Resources, the caterpillars are herbivores that graze on vegetation. The adults serve a role in pollination. This species might garner some protection from predators by mimicking wasps or bad-tasting beetles. It might also acquire some toxicity itself when it gathers nectar from plants with toxic chemicals.

Thanks, Kpmac. Is your power and water back on? We've with without for a day or so at times and I can't imagine what it would be like to be with them on a long term.
