Sweetbay Silk Moths Mating

Moth Love
Found this pair of silk moths on my front porch today. They stayed there a couple of hours. Not quite sure what the actual name is, but pretty sure they are silk moths. Any help? PS – love how much your site is growing!

Hi Kaye,
What wonderful images of mating Sweetbay Silk Moths, Callosamia securifera, you have sent our way. The caterpillars feed on Sweetbay Magnolia. This is a new species for our site.
