Itís a butterfly. You can tell by the way it holds itís wings up and closed when resting, moths always have their wings to the side. Also the antennea are long and thin instead of short and feathery. I think itís a Painted Lady butterfly, idk the scientific name, just the common one.

Yes its a butterfly Red Admiral to be exact...larvae feed on nettles adults will most proberly hibernate in the states...they do occasionally here in the UK but the mortallity is high..
They arrive here in late summer as there strong migrants from Europe...
