UPDATE: I found out with a bit of help from my friend over at Nature in the Ozarks, that this little guy is an American Dagger Moth. Marvin suggested that I submit the photo to the BugGuide, which I did and in a short time I had help with identifying this little guy. Thanks Marvin.
This little guy was found at our church picnic a few months ago. I tried to tell the kids to leave him be but you know how kids can be. I did make sure that he was returned to the area that he was found in though. I hope that he made it to fulfill his life cycle to become a butterfly or moth, whatever he may be.
