Displays the "mohawk" and "worm-like" antennae of my previous sphinx spotting, but the coloration was quite different. Had mossy-green, powdery-white, and flat-brown tones, reminiscent of tree bark with lichens.
Found in Northeast Missouri, near mostly fruit and nut orchards, but other wooded areas are nearby
Incredible example of camouflage! Fortunate to find this one on a rock, as I doubt I would have noticed it on a tree. :)
