In 2007 a very large moth appeared at my back door, stayed for five days and then disappeared. Two days ago, this one …. about half the size… appeared in the same place. When I look for Vancouver island moths, I see some White Underwing Moths, but this does not seem to be the same.

If you disturb this moth and it reveals its underwings with the eyespots, you will understand why it is called a One Eyed Sphinx. You can read more about the One Eyed Sphinx on the Sphingidae of the Americas website. Because of your thoughtful sign, we are awarding you with the Bug Humanitarian Award.
Thank you! Thank you! I am honoured. I thought it had gone this morning, but it is over on the side wall, further away from the door.
