About two inches long, dangling on the side of water feature. The Walnut Sphinx is a moth of the Sphingidae family. It looked just like a dead leaf caught in a web.
It lives from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains and from the southern United States up into parts of Canada. The caterpillars feed on Alder (Alnus), Hickory (Carya), Hazelnut (Corylus), Beech (Fagus), Walnut (Juglans) and Hop-hornbeam (Ostrya) species.
I've read that this is nocturnal but this pic was taken at 2:44 pm. It was gone just as the sun started going down.
Lat: 29.73, Long: -99.07
