Big Poplar Sphinx

I saw this guy last night after a big storm he seems to have weathered by hanging onto my dogs lead. I saw the picture of the Blinded Sphynx that you had on your website and thought this could possibly be the same species? The picture was taken in Richland, NY, near the salmon river.

Hi Ed,
Your photos of the Big Poplar Sphinx, Pachysphinx modesta are gorgeous. These are way, way bigger than the blinded sphinx. Thanks again for contributing to our site.
