Description

Comparison of Five-spotted Hawk Moth (above) and Carolina Sphinx Moth (below). I'll post a record of each here with some of the same and some unique images. Both of these large Manduca moths are fairly regular here. The Five-spotted is a little larger and they have different hindwing markings which can be seen when I used my finger to lift a front wing. These moths are pretty tolerant of such things.

Headed down to Mo Ranch in Hunt, Texas for a Texas Parks and Wildlife meeting for a few days. It included lots of meetings, but of course, we went outside some too. :)

Had a BLAST doing some moth-ing with @benhutchins @cullen @jsinghurst and @annastrong ! Most of these are brand new to me, so I'll have to devote some time to finding out the ID's... Stay tuned. :)
