Small-eyed Sphinx - Paonias myops - male

Small-eyed Sphinx - Paonias myops - Male
Durham County, North Carolina, USA
July 11, 2004
Found at a light. Posed. I like this image because it shows the bizarre posture taken by this genus when at rest. This might be a male, because the antennae are rather plumose compared to other images in BugGuide. Coloration also appears to be more orange than the other individuals--perhaps a sex difference.
