Hi! I found this moth this morning hanging out in my yard. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what it could be? thanks!

Hi Danielle,
This beauty is a Royal Walnut Moth or Regal Moth.  In about September, we will begin receiving identification requests for its spectacular caterpillar, the Hickory Horned Devil.
