Hagen's sphinx
Ceratomia hageni

Observation date: April 22, 2017
Submitted by: Lvkats104
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was in our home. I was able to get it to crawl on my hand and it's wings vibrated quickly for a few seconds and I was able to get to the door to let it fly away outside. It almost looked like a small bird flying but I know it's not a hummingbird moth. It is about the size of a white lined sphinx moth I have seen before, maybe a touch smaller, but not much.
