Either way, it is a moth. And, moths are cool too!

Looks to me like Spear Marked Black (moth) (Rheumaptra hastata); (unless we’re talking the same bug?)

This is probably not that big of a mystery to most on this list, but I have an ID question. I see this little guy all the time in the woods and on edges with regularity. It's usually incredibly energetic and somewhat skittish, so I haven't been able to get a good photo of it until now. If anyone could help me figure it out, that'd be great. Thanks!
 
Here's the photo.

at the north shore of Grand Isle this morning, 5/27.
The  shore immediately above the high water mark
