I think what you have here is an Elephant Hawk-moth, Deilephila elpenor - the color is a bit unusual, but that could be from the flash. Oh, and your moth from a few weeks ago, the red & black one? The Cinnabar, Tyria jacobaeae.

I saw yours bmal, still thinking it is the Elephant Hawk-moth. The white antennae are characteristic, and the colour pattern and shape are correct. Could be a regional variation in colour, or even an environmental variation - moths from caterpillars which feed on a non-native plant can have unusual colouration.

yeah it really looks like it, the white antennae were cool.
