Wasp-mimicking Tiger Moth

Today a photo of a Wasp-mimicking Tiger Moth, Isanthrene crabroniformis, from Tortuguero, Costa Rica. Except for the antennae, it doesn't really look like a moth.

Neither does this one. But this is also a moth, Urania Swallowtail Moth (Urania fulgens) playing hide and seek with another one on the other side of the leaf. These diurnal moths are very common in Tortuguero.
