Here is another bug that I am curious about. It was on the same wall as the Stag Beetle. I think it is quite stunning.

Hi Chris,
Your moth is a Virginia Creeper Sphinx or Grapevine Sphinx, Darapsa myron, and we identified it on Bill Oehlke’s fabulous website.  We are going to include Bill Oehlke in our response to you so he can add your sighting information to the data he is compiling on species distribution.
