Yellow and Violet Imperial Moth

We recently had a visitor. This is an Imperial Moth. Last year's Luna Moth was green and photographed in late August. They are the same family of moths, the Saturniids. Apparently racoons find them a tasty treat.

Here's the topside. Wingspan was about 4 inches.
And the underside (out of focus, damn iPhone camera).
