Laurel sphinx
Sphinx kalmiae

Observation date: July 15, 2021
Submitted by: MochaNeko
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: He seems pretty chill, not moving around much. I've seen him throughout the day in 3 different places not far from each other, and the last time I saw him he had managed to end up on his back. He flailed his little arms at me and I let out a finger, he latched on, and I took him over to a nearby ledge and he seemed ok.
