Some kind of moth. It was shy; I couldn't get any closer.
Of the 12,000 species of lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) in the U.S. and Canada, only 760 are butterflies. Moths rule, but they rule the night.
"I celebrate myself, and sing myself,/And what I assume you shall assume,/For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.//I loafe and invite my soul,/I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass."
