Hi! Could this be a Pluto Sphinx Moth? Picture taken February 11, 2013.
The Pluto Sphinx, Xylophanes pluto, that is pictured on the Sphingidae of the Americas website looks somewhat similar to your moth because it is in the same genus. Your moth is Xylophanes chiron, and it is also pictured on the Sphingidae of the Americas website.
Thank you for your time and quick reply!
