Great Tiger or Big Bear

In my garage, on the floor, I noticed a kind of piece of paper.
When I wanted to pick it up and put it in the dustbin standing next to it,
I saw it was't a piece of paper at all!
It was a night butterfly...a kind of moth.

Beautiful spots and dots all over his wings.
I caught it in a glass, to find out what I found, before it would fly away.
When I noticed he was't that quick, I took away the glass for a closer inspection.
I had found a Great Tiger, Arctic Caja, or Grote Beer,
the last dutch name 'Grote Beer', is because of the woolly bear like caterpillar.

I never saw such a big Moth...with such beautiful colors.!

Amazing firy orange underwings...and even his body is brilliant orange...
