Moth and ladyslipper

Off in the woods looking for flowers, pink lady slippers and foam flowers were the flowers of the day. I made some images of pink lady slippers as the mosquitoes devoured me, and then looked around and saw a ladyslipper with something white on it. My first thought was there was a petal stuck on it. Here’s a closeup:

A moth! There are moths that pollinate orchids, but I’ve never seen one on a pink ladyslipper before. I don’t have an ID yet – maybe a geometrid moth.
