I agree with ForestDragon it's the Banded Sphinx Moth (Eumorpha fasciatus)...! http://bugguide.net/node/view/597408

Great find! The patterning on the wings looks closer to the Banded Sphinx to me. Here is an image of a White-lined Sphinx for comparison. http://bugguide.net/node/view/966258

Check out the link I provided in my ID suggestion as well and see what you think! :-)
