Thank you for you reply. I have a large “Orange Jasmine” bush that flowers often and profusely. This brings in lots of flying insects and the flying insects attract tropical orb spiders.
I have attached some photos. You may use any of the photos I have sent to you, my compliments. If there are numbers in the file name they are the year, month, day.
The file named Moth_unknown: I see many similar types of moth when the jasmine blooms.
I live on eight acres, about 8 miles east of Naples, FL.
Hi again Rober,
This gorgeously aerodynamic Sphinx Moth is Protambulyx strigilis. According to the Sphingidae of the Americas website it is commonly called the Streaked Sphinx
