Small-eyed Sphinx Moth, near Atlanta, Georgia, May 9, 2016

This Small-eyed Sphinx Moth (Paonias myops) was resting on my vehicle on May 9, 2016 near Atlanta, Georgia.  I have been wanting to post it for some time, but have been happily busy with some other responsibilities.  I found a stick, got the moth to climb onto it, and transferred the moth to an azalea bush before driving away.  Enjoy!
