Pink-spotted hawkmoth.
Thanks ever so much for the prompt response. I am finding that moth photography & identification are both very challenging, as the specimen rarely avail their full silhouettes and colors to the camera lens. They are normally alit when discovered with wings folded. There is seldom much opportunity for more than dorsal exposures. All input & recommendations accepted.
Thanks again,

Jack Blanke
Metairie, LA

6 Legs
Fully developed wings = Adult
