Sphinx moth? - Smerinthus cerisyi

Sphinx moth? - Smerinthus cerisyi
near Horsefly, Cariboo, British Columbia, Canada
June 15, 2006
Resting on the side of a house on an overcast day, about mid-day.

Nice image of Smerinthus cerisyi. Hind wings are pinkish with blue eyespots.

If only I could have got the hind wings in a shot! That would be spectacular. But this one was just resting, and I guess I didn't offer sufficient threat for it to feel like it had to display.
