I think this is a moth rather than a butterfly, because it has a fat body and feathery antennae.  It is large, with about a 4 or 5 inch wing span. The closest I could find is called an Emperor Gum Moth but since they are native to Australia that can't be right.  I don't remember ever seeing one before and this one was dying as I photographed it...and she does look a little battered...
