thought it was a tomato hornworm and tossed it out of our little greenhouse. didn't look quite right though. Turns out it is a bedstraw hawkmoth instead which is good because we have a ton of bedstraw here, and when i tossed it out of the greenhouse it probably went into a pile of growing bedstraw so good for it.
Large moth Think is a Hawk moth, ID suggestions welcome
