I am a Anisota virginiensis
"Pink-striped Oakworm moth" is what I'm usually called.
When I'm a caterpillar I like to eat oak leaves
When I'm a moth I drink, but don't eat at all.

(Make sure you click the picture to enlarge this one, his little tiny feet grasping the pine needle are soooo freaking adorable!)
