Yellow & Brown Spotted Moth

Oooooh neato! I spotted (so to speak) this bright yellow moth from far far away. I was surprised that it didn't fly away when I walked right up to it and turned over the leaf it was resting on, to get a better look at it's pretty Jackson Pollock splatter spots. (Walking softly helps, but not casting a shadow over it is key to sneaking up on just about any insect. )

Is this the actual name of the moth in your pictures. I saw one today and originally thought it was a butterfly 'till I was able to get close enough to see it. For a little moth it sure is bright enough to never forget. Great picture
