Beige brown Hawk-Moth?
June 29, 2010
I’m in Denver, Colorado, and found this moth hanging on my front door screen. I did not fly away, so I photographed it a lot and later this night it was “training” it’s wings and finally flew away. I would like to know if I got the identification right Thank you in advance for your response.
