Congrats! This spotting has been featured as a PN Fun Fact.

The sphinx moths are a popular group of moths and a special treat to find. We love this hummingbird hawk moth from Sri Lanka! Sphinx moths have a wide distribution and can be found throughout most of the world. Find out more about them in this blog we posted last year.
