Maybe a Robin Moth? - Hyalophora columbia

Maybe a Robin Moth? - Hyalophora columbia
Fredericton Junction, Sunbury County, New Brunswick, Canada
May 29, 2012
Size: estimated about 4 inches
This moth was found in my neighbour's back yard nearby a Solomen. The striped body was the clue for us suggesting it might be a Robin Moth of which we saw in a moth field guide book. The moth stayed most of the day at the same location.

Although this image is rather oversaturated (I think that's the term), there is no doubt that this is Hyalophora columbia columbia, a close relative to the robin moth.
