Name that moth!

What is this? I took it out of the Rooster's mouth yesterday. He picked it out of the bark of the tree. I have never seen this coloring on a moth before. Anybody know?

It reminds me of candy.

Looks like a Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda ). Here's a few links on it...

Anonymous beat me to it! I agree, it looks like a Dryocampa rubicunda. Here is another link w/photo.
It sure is a pretty moth. Just like candy!

It is a pretty moth. I've never seen one before, or if I have it was really battered and not near as vivid. I should learn moths. Perhaps an insect id book is in my future.
