Beautiful one.

 

In Venezuela there are several species of moths with huge wing span (over 9 inches in some cases from first hand experience) alas I haven't got photos of my own at the moment to show them.

 

 

The black witch moth is very similar to one of them http://midcoast.tamu.edu/images/moth%20001.jpg

 

And well in the U.S some of you might know the Luna moth, there's a similar one in south america which is slightly larger but with some variation to the shape of the wing.

It looks similar to this.

Thanks for posting your photo once more it's a wonderful sample.

 

 

Here's a nice selection of butterflies and moths for those who like them.
