Early August in the Yard

A few new arrivals in the yard:

I believe this butterfly is a Common Buckeye.

After a brief thunderstorm, this young Northern Mockingbird seemed very unhappy with its damp and disheveled feathers.

And I would love some help identifying this moth. Any ideas?

    What a beautiful butterfly … and as we don’t have Mockingbirds around here, I loved seeing your photo of one!
