After finding this moth early in the morning, I found another one nearby. I moved both to a plant on my porch, and they obliged by opening their wings. So beautiful!
Crazy how the antennae split the eyes in half!

I rescued this tiny flyer from entrapment on a milkweed blossom. Note the pollinia on the front foot! After a brief recovery period on my finger, off s/he flew, hopefully avoiding another near-death experience with the milkweed!
