It’s a Eumorpha pandorus, also known as a Pandora Sphinx moth or camouflage moth. Here’s a peek at the underside, too.
In my garden, 2010’s been a great year for Lepidoptera, especially giant swallowtails. But this?!! WOW. I have no idea where it came from or how I happened to see it, but it was certainly an honored guest. Anyone see these regularly in their garden or know their migration route?
