Did you guess it was a moth?
Antheraea polyphemus to be exact (don't be too impressed, it took me half an hour to find it online)!
What you can't tell from this shot is how huge this thing is ... the wingspan is about 6 inches (from the tip of my pinkie to the crease of my wrist)!!!
It's the biggest moth I've ever seen! It visited me on Thursday morning, spent the day on the tree, and was gone by Friday morning.
