A silk moth of some sort
July 6,2011
We believe this may be a silk moth of some sort. We live in Prince Edward Island.
I have several more photos of this beauty, if you would like them. With wings extended, it was around 3″+ from wingtip to wingtip. It was released peacefully.

Blinded Sphinx

We can’t help but to be amused that your Blinded Sphinx can be identified on the Sphingidae of Prince Edward Island website.

Thank you for getting back to me.
I am equally amused and dismayed that I did not find that site on my own, hehe. I am usually pretty good at web searching.
Thank you. 🙂 Both my son and myself have greatly enjoyed capturing (and releasing!) bugs and using your site to identify ones that confuse us a bit.
