    Not a butterfly but a Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth (Hypercompe scribonia)

    Giant Leopard moth: The Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth (Hypercompe scribonia) has a distinct pattern of black rings, reminiscent to those found in its namesake the leopard. The moth's unmistakeable colorings is aposematic, meaning that they are actually "advertising" the bug's unpalatability to potential predators.

    The Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth is a moth of the family Arctiidae. It is distributed throughout the Southern and Eastern United States from New England to Mexico. I grew one of these from a catipillar. Not kidding.
