This is the second year that I have had one on the screen of our sliding glass door. It hangs out for a day and I finally researched what type of moth he is. He is very pretty. I took pics if you would like one I can e'mail it to you.
I'm in Northern Indiana on a 100 acre farm that is pretty overgrown and not farmed much over the past 30 years.
My daughter is near Ashtabula, OH, on the south shore of Lake Erie and just sent me a picture of one at rest on a cobblestone beach (05/25/2013). Glad I found this website to send back to her.

A eight spotted Forrester ( I think it would be a male)was on my sidewalk at miday on May 26, 2014. I live in Arden, NC (near Asheville) at 2600 ft of elevation. I have a photo.

I found one of these in the Death Valley area in Kananaskis Country, west of Millarville, Alberta, Canada on Father's Day. I have a photo of it as well, available here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ubermoogle/18442808404/
