I have a most unusual butterfly or moth for this area (Green Valley, AZ)
... at least no one can remember seeing one this large around here.

It's very interesting and was on my screen door this morning. 

A friend has put it's picture on my web site below: 

Wing tip to wing tip about 3 1/2 inches.

Have tried several pictorial web sites but don't find anything with this
wing pattern. Light brown overall with white line in slightly "V" shape
when hugging door in sleep.  Eye pattern on end of tail and leading edge
of front area a brown.

Haven't tried to capture or move ... too pretty to not be free, but
still curious about what it is.

I hope this is the group to ask.  If not, I'm sorry for the intrusion.
