Bedroom Visitor

The Underwing Moth, Catocala irene, paid a visit to my son's bedroom today.  Probably came here to die, as it couldn't get airborne and only fluttered when I touched it.  In resting position, the colorful hind wings are covered and the fore wings provide good camouflage against most surfaces. Antennae and parts of head are gone, but it was still alive.
