I was trying to identify this moth and came across your site. It seems I have found a silk moth. The unusual thing is I live in Michigan. I took this photo in my back yard May 26, 2012. I’ve never seen one of these before.

This Cecropia Moth is in fact a member of the Giant Silkmoth family Saturniidae. It is one of the largest North American moths.
