Last night my husband and I were in the garage when we saw this guy on the ceiling. After doing some Internet searching I came to the conclusion that this may be a Sphinx Moth. And he is still hanging out in our garage this evening. If it is a sphinx moth I would like to know what type and any other info about this guy. So, any ideas?

Dear Bridget,
You are quite correct that this is a Sphinx Moth.  More specifically, it is a Tersa Sphinx, a species common in Florida.
