Can anyone identify this moth

Post  GloriaG on 4/19/2013, 8:10 pm

I was outside covering my tomato plants this afternoon and found this fellow flying around my petunias. It's huge - almost as large as a hummingbird. It hovers and has a very long tongue to sip nectar. Does anyone know what kind of moth it is?





Thanks,
Gloria

Post  GloriaG on 4/20/2013, 12:39 am

Thanks for the information.

I just looked up White Lined Sphinx and found it's the moth form of our famous "tomato horn worms" Too bad, now I'll have to stand guard over the tomatoes.
Thanks again for the help,
Gloria
