I agree with Jennifer, ask on the other forum. I did try to find it in my references but so far no luck. The nearest I could get was a kind of skipper but none matched the markings exactly.

It's a very pretty moth. I like it!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I know but the desire to give it love is still there.

Yes.
I carefully trapped it under a glass and took it outside.
