Submitted by: rkudrick
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Cool, clear evening. Darting around my head, then feeding on milkweed flowers. Never slowed down! Seemed small for a sphinx moth, but I've never seen this species before. Photos are screen shots from a video. It dated away before I could switch to picture.
