Walnut Caterpillar moth

Found this guy sheltering under a planter on my patio today.
It's an Imperforate Datana Walnut Caterpillar moth, Datana integerrima. Despite their name, the caterpillars also eat the leaves of victories, pecans, and oaks; this one most likely the latter around here. Handsome guy, no?
