I saw this funky looking moth in the Mid Hudson Valley, NY. He was spotted clinging to the side of my car on a warm July night. He was very resistant to move, so we gently relocated him into a plant. Any idea what kind of moth this is?

Dear Kimberly,
This striking moth is a Blinded Sphinx, a species that ranges across continental North America.
