Surprise at Work

My manager took this picture on her way into work this morning. When I got in she immediately asked me to the side and showed me the image, "Chris, what is this giant moth I found?"

I knew it was a giant silk moth but then I realized which one it was. This is the adult form of the endangered Hickory Horned Devil, Citheronia regalis, also called the Regal Moth... for some reason.

My manager doesn't know it yet but she's getting a free jar of honey.
