Lettered Sphinxes and a Gnome

first sphingidae of spring
I spotted and collected my first sphinx moths of the year on Sunday (3/18). I found out they are Lettered Sphinx moths, Deidamia inscripta, from bugguide.net. I was scrolling through your marvelous collection of sphinx images, and I didn’t see any of this species, so I thought you might like to check these out. (And the female laid eggs the night I collected them!) Going to be a good year for moths! Anyways, keep up the great work, bugman!!

Hi Bobby,
Your amusing photo of Lettered Sphinxes just made our day. It is awesome.
