Sphinx perelegans

Observation date: July 06, 2022
Submitted by: KittenWood Mountain
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The moth was inside my house on the kitchen window screen. We have a honeysuckle bush outside on the porch. It did not move while removing the screen to move it outside into a semi screened porch behind the honeysuckle. The moth could easily & safely leave, which it did. It was gone when I checked 5am next morning. The weather was in the mid 70s and mostly cloudy during the day and cleared off late afternoon.
