Is it a Moth? - Harrisina americana

Is it a Moth? - Harrisina americana
Americus, Sumter County, Georgia, USA

At first glance, I thought it was a wasp. But, then I saw the antennae and thought it was a moth. What is it?

Moved to Harrisina americana
Moved from ID Request.

Grape Leaf Skeletonizer.

Yep.
It is meant to mimic a wasp. Try looking up the Grapeleaf Skeletonizer Moth.

 
Thank you.
It looked like a love bug from a distance and then, it looked like a wasp, but, I was pretty sure it was a mimic. Thanks.
