Franck's Sphinx

Sphinx franckii


Spotted another of these on Aug. 14 ... this one was in far better shape, out of traffic and with a chance to take its next step successfully. Wish my photos could do it proper justice. Late afternoon spotting, hard sunlight on a slant and the green pole didn't help. Still, a beautiful creature!



Another spotting, same species:

Saw two more of these this afternoon ... same location. All hatching out at about the same time, perhaps.

Thank you, Lucky ... this moth was positioned so that I could get a shot of its fuzzy little face. Jacob remarked, when I posted a quick shot of the same species over the weekend, that it's kind of an uncommon spotting. So it was pretty cool to get a chance to see it again. Ta-raaa!
