Imperial Moth

I found this moth yesterday in town. It was nearly dead so I took it home. They are not common to this area. I think this moth is so pretty, it has a wingspan of 4 1/4 inches.

I am taking pictures of it on it's back and then all of a sudden it tries to flip over and gets stuck like this. I think it looks like it is break dancing. Pardon my foot and my camera strap in the picture, but I just had to share it with you. (I need a pedicure)
