Howard, thanks for the information.
American Snout (Libytheana carinenta)
These butterflies have dull grey color. But when they open their wings you can see bright red and white colors on their wings.

Took this photo after sunset.

hello Ashok,
It's a very nice composition you made ,showing this interesting Moth. Good idea to have taken it from the side, so we can see its impressive profile. Nice dark background as a good contrast to the colour of the Snout.
Thanks and best regards
