What is this?

As I was looking at this morning's photos of daylilies, I saw the outline of a strange object on one of the petals, and then over-exposed the image to see the insect more clearly.

Then I cropped the image to zero in on the bug and found something I have never seen. What is this?

So this is Himmelman's Plume Moth. I'm not certain that it is a welcome visitor in our daylily garden. http://www.cirrusimage.com/Moth_Himmelmans_Plume.htm
