I'm not quite sure what this little fella is. I think it might be a Vapourer Moth, but I don't know that. Maybe someone in the know can inform me. What I do know is that it certainly likes geranium leaves.

????? OMG!!
Jon, this is a super set!
I'm sure you're right in your ID, it's Orgyia (Orgyia) antiqua, The Vapourer Moth.
You're lucky, my friend!
