All the hawkmoths i’ve seen dont appear to have wings like this though; so i’m not completely sure what it is. Please get back to me.
The individual in your photograph is indeed a Hawkmoth known as the Gaudy Sphinx. It is unlikely to confuse this beauty with any other North American species since the green coloration is so vivid. The underwings are also beautifully colored and marked.
