This colorful moth is an Ailanthus Webworm Moth (Atteva aurea). These are becoming more and more common in Michigan, though from what I read they cannot survive our winters and so migrate north in the spring. I found this specimen on the wall of my garage a few days ago:
Sixty-six stacked images, made with a Pentax K-3 and reverse mounted DFA 50mm macro lens on about on extension tubes. Magnification is about 3.5x lifesized.
