Joe was cleaning out the shop this afternoon and came across this.
It's an Imperial Moth. Their larva feed on every kind of tree that grows in the surrounding hundreds of miles. The identification was courtesy of http://www.whatsthatbug.com/ .

I'd like to think that the plural for Praying Mantis is Praying Manti. I hope that he made a good meal for her afterwards.
