Another beautiful creature

Look at what was sitting on my garage when I got home from work yesterday.  What a beautiful creature it was.  My neighbor kids came over and scooped it up and took it home with them.  Hopefully it has made a good new home.
Does anyone out there know just what kind of moth it is?  Leave a comment and let me know if you do.  I'm thinking a Luna Moth or a Cecropia??  I must have some teacher friends that would know, don't I??

**After further review, it is indeed a Luna Moth.  They come from those really big green worms.  After they turn into a moth, they only live for about a week since they don't have mouths.  No wonder they are so rare to see!  Kinda sad, but it was beautiful :)

Happy Scrappin'
