Rustic Sphinx Moth

When I got home this evening I found a RUSTIC SPHINX MOTH nestled comfortably on the England flag that hangs by my back door (which reminds me and my visitors that I’m a strange foreigner from the other side of the world). This is a big moth – a behe-moth, you could say (see what I did there?) They can have a wingspan of up to six inches. This wasn’t a small one, either. What a stunning creature!
