Virginia Creeper Sphinx

Dear Dee,
Is this a current sighting or was this image taken previously?  This is a Virginia Creeper Sphinx, and based on BugGuide data, the earliest reported sightings in Pennsylvania occur in May, so an early April sighting seems quite unusual.  You can find additional information on Sphingidae of the Americas.
