White Lined Sphinx Moth

Hey! I just found your site and love it, thought I might contribute a little bit. Here is a little friend, what I think is a white lined sphinx moth. It was a warm Nebraska night when this little fellow landed on me and decided to start posing. It stayed on me for about an hour, even as I was walking around and taking pictures. It was a pretty cool experience. Eventually I had to take it off and it just flew away into the night!
We are terribly amused with your photos of a Whitelined Sphinx, Hyles lineata, one of the commonest members of its family and also one of the widest ranging. The Whitelined Sphinx may be encountered across North America.
