Mournful Sphinx

Dear Brenten and Kristin,
We think it is awesome that you have decided to begin an insect diary.  Will it be online?  This creature is a Mournful Sphinx,
Enyo lugubris, and it is a moth in the family Sphingidae.  You may read more about the Mournful Sphinx on the Sphingidae of the Americas website.

Im thinking of posting it on instagram and possibly start a blog on facebook about it. My instagram name is benzaitengrand check it out sometime! AND thank you for identifying the species!!!!!!
