One big moth!

Polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus)
This morning, I was in the car, backing down the driveway, when I happened to glance at our front door. Darn in! Now I gotta turn off the car and go back in the house for my camera... Which I did, of course. I certainly can't miss the chance to photograph a huge, beautiful silkmoth! After looking at similar moths on Bugguide.net, I posted this photo and asked if I had the ID right: Antheraea polyphemus. Yes!
