Today I saw a Pandorus Sphinx moth (Eumorpha pandorus). It is nearly all green and quite beautiful. (Note: Its host plants are grape and Virginia creeper. It is listed as fairly common in northeastern North America and is closely related to the Hummingbird Clearwing which nectars at flowers like hummingbirds do. D.M.)
