I was sitting on my back patio when I noticed this creature clinging to my reataining wall. It’s about the size of a credit card if it was square, a tad bit wider. I do wonder if this thing could harm the plants around here. I have never seen anything like it in the 35 years I’ve lived here.
Thank you for your time!

Blinded Sphinx

Hi MAry,
This is a Blinded Sphinx and it will not harm your plants.  This is also the second photo of a Blinded Sphinx we posted today, and the earlier posting shows the eyespots on the underwings.
