Wow you sure know your moths and butterflies!
I took this picture in 2009. While I was walking in the yard they suddenly landed on the pole. How often you see two of them big ones? To me this was very special. I think they are a pair because there is a slight difference between them.
Thanks again for the information!

Thank you! You are never too old to learn. I really thought it was abutterfly but it was very big and there were two of them.

oh, well let me help you a bit more :)

heres what to check to tell the difference between a moth and a butterfly!

moths are generally more active at night time, have a duller colour scheme than butterflies and when they rest their wings, their wings are open while a butterflies wings are together and upright. moth antennae look feathery or pointed, while they have a thick, heavier body than the butterfly :)

i hope this helps
