What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Dear Bugman,
My daughter’s friend sent this to us. The girls stumbled across this bug in Copper Canyon, Texas. Do you know what this is? By the way, excellent site!!
Thank you!

Thanks for the compliment Jo. You have a photo of a Vine Sphinx, Eumorpha vitis. It is a Southern species found in Texas, Florida and points south, though it has been reported from Nebraska. Caterpillars feed on grape vine leaves.
