moth - Sphinx vashti
Rovana 13 miles north of Bishop, Inyo County, California, USA
June 12, 2018
Size: body maybe 1.75 in
Saw 2 of them 8 pm feeding on my lavender and primrose plants in garden along with 20 plus white-lined sphinx moths. I am guessing this is a sphinx moth species as well. Very fast flyer with long wings. Wished I could have taken a better photo but low light and a fast moth with a point and shoot camera.

Moved from ID Request.
