Sphinx gordius

Observation date: June 21, 2013

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This moth was found on the shed doors of my work. There's a lot of tree cover and a cement wall next to the shed. It was in the 60's and quite sunny out. It was very still until I took it of the shed for my boss since she hates bugs. I really didn't want to kill it. I brought it home in a cup, and it's been going nuts. I put in in a butterfly house I had and it was still going nuts.
