It was a smaller moth, but very cool. It looked like a leaf, but then I saw it fly. What kind is it...is it a Blinded Sphinx Paonias excaecata

I agree.
I agree with Julia. Moving your lovely images to the guide page for that species. Thank you for sharing!

Blinded
It seems to match the blinded Sphinx more than any of the others. Possibly there is some variability in color here.
