CLOSED: Help Identify This Moth

Columbus, OH(Zone 6a)

I know it's not a plant, but I do know that all the friendly and knowledgable folks here could help!
Does anybody know what kind of moth this may be? It was found on my neighbor's front porch resting under a table. It didn't mind have its picture taken at all!

Looks like a waved Sphinx moth (ceratomia undulosa) to me.

Looks as if you have a pandorus sphinx.

I agree with gldandrews, it is the Pandorus Sphinx Eumorpha pandorus http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/distr/lepid/moths/usa/1053.htm

Thank you everyone for your input! I do agree that it is a pandorus sphinx! I looked really close at it and the picture on the usgs site, and it matched to a "T"! I'll mark this one as solved!
