1.5″ Moth

Wood Leopard Moth (Zeuzera pyrina). Introduced to North America sometime prior to 1879 from Europe. First I’ve come across.
The larvae can be a pest to fruit trees. But blue legs to die for here on the imago.

    Beautiful bug with a great set of legs. What does the adult eat?

    Wow, very stylish! Rather beautiful, even. Ellen will love it, pesky larvae notwithstanding.
