Image Use Request
Hello!

I’m working on a project involving the Sphingidae of the USA. It is a website (sphingidae.us) that will launch officially in late Spring 2018. I would love your permission to use this image on the website, credited to you. This will help fill out the website and provide additional images for people to view and figure out their own IDs. If you’re willing to share this image (or any others of Sphingidae), please email me: sphingidaeusa@gmail.com

Thank you,
Teá Kesting-Handly
