That is certainly a moth. Some moths rest with their antennae folded back under the leading edge of the wings. It could be in the family Noctuidae, but I have so far been unable to identify it. Post your pictures to our Insect and Spider Identification Discussion Forum:
and someone may be able to name it for you,
