Default Moth?

While having breakfast with Sandra this morning, I noticed I had a new visitor to our new screened in porch. He was outside up under the fascia and rafters. Which one of you entomologists would care to tell us what this is? Pretty huh?

Don't know what it's called but I've seen them up here on the Coast. Curious also, I am.
In all likelihood not something you want laying eggs in your garden...

I think Dan found it. The strangest one I`ve ever seen is one that resembles a hummingbird. I watched them for several minutes the first time I saw them thinking that it looked like a hummingbird and fed like a hummingbird on flowers but that something wasn`t quite right. Only place I`ve ever seen them is around Shuswap Lake in the southern BC interior. I saw a moth that looks like a hummingbird. What is it? | Butterflies and Moths of North America

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Of all the things up here that go 'bump' in the night, moths are the least of my worries, Don!

The largest Moth I have ever seen must have been 5"-6" wing span, and the body 3"-4" long when I lived in Hillsborough, Ore. about this time of year. a bunch of them were on my bug light on the patio deck.
