Very similar to our "Rosy Maple Moth", but the colors are wrong. It has the same furry type head, and destructive to trees, maple, or course. You might have a look through Linda Buckells' moths for an ID, as she's across the pond. But it might possibly be in the same species as ours, just a different subfamily. I've learned long ago though, you can never be too sure. Nice shot, btw. Hope to see more this season. ;-)
