  Moth

We sometimes look around for "big" things, but we should also try to peek into the microcosm to enjoy unexpected wonders.
This one-inch long moth was resting on my balcony in Brighton, MI and I was amazed at its furry appearance. It might be a common thing indeed in this area but a very strange creature for me!
I'm curious and I'd appreciate to receive info on this if you are familiar with it.

UPDATE:
Thanks to VTer "wongjeweler" for sharing information on this moth, which is the Tolype Velleda. Info available at:
