I think ceherzog is right on with this one. The other suggestion is close but that moth is found in Australia, this is in the US.

Actually, now that I look at the Cephonodes...I think that is the correct ID. I just don't know if it occurs in Vermont.

Looks like a sphinx moth to me, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphingidae
