Sphinx moth - Ceratomia catalpae

Sphinx moth - Ceratomia catalpae
Henryetta, Okmulgee County, Oklahoma, USA
August 31, 2015
Found in My driveway.
It got tired of my attention and took of low to the ground, at which point My cat started to chase it.
As I yelled at the cat the moth gained altitude, then a small hawk dove out of a tree and got the moth.
I feel bad for the moth, but the hawk got a meal.
