beautiful baby! Bald cypress sphinx

Joshua's Caterpillar
Thanks for such a fast response. I stayed up very late last night trying to find a picture that matched mine with no success. I figured it was some kind of sphinx. This makes perfect sense as the lake he was close to has a LOT of cypress trees. We loved watching him...such a beauty!
