Antennae to die for

His antennae are fully 3/4" wide, each. Doesn't get much better than this.

Here is the post describing my finding the cocoon and everything.

It's a male Polyphemus moth, Antheraea polyphemus.
Here's some good ID book links
A Field Guide to the MOTHS of Eastern North America (Peterson Field Guides)
Butterflies of North America (Kaufman Field Guides)
