Here is a picture I took last summer of a way cool moth out in our lawn. I think I've narrowed it down to a Smerinthus cerisyi - One eyed sphinx moth. Can anyone confirm this ID? It was large and quite striking.

Beautiful photo
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I see those occasionally here, but I've never known the ID.

One of several species of hawkmoth. Almost all are quite striking.
The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We should learn from them!

One of the Eyed Hawkmoth. Getting a shot of the underwing was quite lucky. A real beauty.
