What moth is this?
Found in our backyard. As long as a cigarette .
I've seen them before and always called 'em a Woods Moth.

Thanks guys. I did a search on both suggestions.

Got to be a Sphinx Moth. A five spotted Hawk Sphinx Moth.
Thanks again. Now I know.
Here's a link I found on Moth I found...Moth Photographers Group – Manduca quinquemaculatus – 7776

Here's a link to other variations of Sphinx Moth...
Moth Photographers Group – Living Moths Plate 20F – Sphingidae
Thanks and yep, that's the one. I had never seen one before but I have seen many of them green tomato worms over the years and had no clue what produced them. Only 0730 and I learned something new today already!

We have a large potato field boarding two sides of our property. I suspect I'll see more.
