Cecropia Moth in Downtown Northfield

This enormous, strikingly patterned moth was hanging out amid the flowers and greenery in a concrete planter outside my workplace in downtown Northfield. It looks like a Cecropia moth, which is North America's largest native moth according to Wikipedia. My Golden Guide to Butterflies and Moths puts the wingspan at 4.0-6.3 inches.
