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!!!!!!
