Hübner’s wasp moth

My daughter found this brightly colored moth resting on a leaf in the bush downstairs.  Its color mimicking wasp is definitely an evolution advantage.  Predators likely avoid eating anything as poisonous and unpalatable as the bright wasp color warns.  It is likely a pollinator just like bees and butterflies.
