Sphinx in the Garden

I love having unique visitors to the yard.  This is a White Lined Sphinx Moth.  Also known as Hawk Moth or Hummingbird Moth.  They are rather large and really beautiful.  So furry you almost want to pet them.  This one sat in the jam of the door for the day so we could ogle it.  They are great garden pollinators so be sure not to harm them.   I like the idea of a Sphinx coming to visit!
