Not a Butterfly

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Not a Butterfly
Not a Butterfly
This was taken at the "Wings of Wonder" Butterfly farm but it's not a butterfly. It's one big moth. Trying to identify it I looked at hundreds of moth pictures but could not fine one that matched. I should have gotten it's name when I was there but didn't. Maybe it's not from the US.

Gorgeous capture. I'm almost sure that it's an Atlas Moth. IDs are a little tricky because the wings rest in many different positions, but I'd be willing to bet.

My guess is it's an Atlas too, although the colors are different from any I've seen. Super capture!
