Could use some help ID'ing this moth. Photo was taken in Lehigh Valley area of PA. Wing span of about 2 to 3 inches. I've tried to compare to photos online and didn't come up with anything similar.

That is it. Thank you.

Not sure why that didn't show up in my search. Guess I need to find a better reference link.  :p
