Pacific green sphinx
Proserpinus lucidus

Observation date: March 12, 2018
Submitted by: LaurieM
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The moth was outside my door which is on an upstairs balcony, on door sill beside a big flower pot with a dormant lavender plant in it. Sunny cold windy day. The moth stayed on my hand while I moved around and went inside to get camera and wouldn't leave my hand unless I purposefully guided him off. He readily climbed back on after I put him on the piece of my felted wool for photos.
