Yay...I did it...now on to the story..I googled this beautiful creature and it is an Atlas Moth, native too Subtropical and tropical areas!! I live in Ohio (10 miles South of Lake Erie), and I have no idea why "he" decided to hang out for awhile on my Peach Tree...for a couple of hours...amazing

Did you resize your photo per the instructions on this site? Maybe try that and then post again.

How cool is that!! About how large do you think he is?

I'm so glad you were able to finally post the pictures; it was worth the wait.

I'm so glad you were able to finally post the pictures; it was worth the wait. "His" wing span was about 5.5 to 6''..It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen..It looked like he had an orange cape of fur on and the antennae looked fake..It was amazing...all my pics are on Flickr I will pm you my email..take a look...also if you googel Atlas Moth you will see more ..thanks
