Thanks!
Trying to classify one of my moths, it took forever to find a good picture and identification on the site.

Thanks!!

Very nice indeed
I recommend you google Bill Oehlke for his email address and contact him. He has a comprehensive site on Sphingidae and he doesn't have an image of a live adult of this species and I'm sure he could use this image.

Very nice indeed
