Cecropia Moth

Is this a Sphinx Moth? Hi Bugman
We found this moth sitting in the sun in the center of our drive. (June 2 2006) It remained there for about 6-8 hours. We had to leave and when we returned it was gone. Could you tell me about it? We live in southwestern Ontario Canada. To be specific 30 minutes north of London Ont.Thanks

Hi Deb,
This is not a Sphinx Moth, but a Giant Silk Moth. More specifically, it is a Cecropia Moth and we got many photos in the month of June.
