Thank you, beaker98. The upside of living in a largely rural state, I guess. Many of the places I find myself are out in the country, open spaces often close to meadows, pastures, forested areas ... lucky.

You've been finding lots of awesome moths! I'm jealous, I've only seen one sphinx moth this summer and of course I didn't have my camera with. This one is gorgeous!

Thank you, Jacob, I think you've made a bit of a "moth-er" out of me ... they're everywhere, if you look for them.
