Gorgeous Moth

We spotted this beautiful moth camouflaged on the bark of an ash tree -- he's maybe an inch and a half long. Does anyone know what kind he might be?

He seems to be a waved sphinx moth - Ceratomia undulosa. What a great name. (Thanks Sue Willson and daughter Gigi for the help identifying this guy!)
