One-Eyed Sphinx Moth

While we were in Colorado this summer, a one-eyed sphinx moth (also called Cerisey's sphinx) landed on my brother-in-law, Clark, giving us all a close up look. I was pretty sure it was a sphinx moth when we saw it and confirmed it tonight when looking back through the pictures with the help of the National Wildlife Federation Field Guide Insects and Spiders of North America.
