Could your moth be the white admiral butterfly, Limenitis arthemis? I can't tell from the photo what the tips of those antenna are up to (if they are thickened like a club, then it's a butterfly)

That was tiny thing--maybe 1/2 tops. I do happen to have a couple of White Admiral pics, which I will post momentarily. When I have a chance, I have an ancient tome on moths of north america...I will see if I can find that thing. How hard can it be? (Famous last words.)

Now, that's a project: there about 12,000 species of Lepidoptere in US & Canada, and with only 760 of these butterflies & skippers, the rest are moths.
