this bug was on the front door all day and even when the door would be slammed shut it wouldnt fall off. i took pictures of it and we all want to know what it is. We were in Jamesport, NY (on Long island)

Though it is easily mistaken for a Sphinx Moth, the Spotted Apatelodes, Apatelodes torrefacta, is actually a Silkworm Moth in the family Bombycidae.
