Large Moth – Possibly Giant Silkworm?
Hi, i took this photo in our front garden earlier – there was also a female in our back garden but i couldnt get a photo. I would love to know what it is, but all the references ive seen have the wings the other way round… Anyway, hope you can identify it. Thanks
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
The Modest Sphinx, depicted in your photo, is sometimes called the Big Poplar Sphinx, but that common name also refers to another species.
