Wildlife Wednesday - Big Moth

This is my very technical name for this critter - Big Moth.

I get this moth drift in once a year - I guess it's a different one each year - and I don't know what it is. I've looked up my butterfly and moth books but I can't get an exact match.

They aren't small. Across their wings would be a distance the length of my hand (15 cm or so).

Any idea what they are?

They stay for only a day or two. They don't go to a plant or tree but land on the ground or a door or something and just sit quietly.

I'm pretty fond of his feathery antennae.
