After posting my cool caterpillar picture yesterday here is a nice symmetry. When I got home last night I noticed a little moth outside my apartment window - yes, that's right, it was the White-marked Tussock Moth Orgyia leucostigma! This guy was quite the high-flyer as I live on the twenty-first floor. Because of this we don't have fully opening windows so my photos are very poor as I had to shoot through glass.

This is a really useful sight for bug ID help by the way.
Unfortunately shortly after I took the photos, a vicious thunder storm blew through and the moth disappeared.
