Look what took a break on my Peach Tree

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.
