Creepy Crawlies – Giant Moth

Just a few days after arriving here the Goossen family was well aware of our love of bugs.  They found this creature at their house, put him in a box and brought him over.  While trying to look at him and get a picture, he started fluttering around our house, finally landing on the wall.  Bug boy careful laid his hand next to it, to help give idea of its size.  After the photo op the kids let him go outside where he decided to rest on the screen outside the kitchen window for awhile before going on his way.

After a Google search, the best guess I have is that this is a tropical swallowtail moth.
