Small-eyed Sphinx - Paonias myops - male

Small-eyed Sphinx - Paonias myops - Male
Durham County, North Carolina, USA
July 11, 2004
Found on a wall underneath a light. This is a male, based on the somewhat plumose antennae and the very "curled-up" abdomen. Also, the coloration is more orange than the other photos on BugGuide--a sex difference? Chilled and posed for photos.
