Thanks for the suggestions. White striped black moth looks good to me. In the links from Kent, they show the same white splotches at the tips of the forewings and hindwings.

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.
