Western Poplar Sphinx Moth

Pachysphinx occidentalis

We leave the CFL blacklight on overnight for reason that different species fly at different times.
However, after turning the light off this morning and rushing out the door, I only recently glanced over at the north wall at ~ 1800 hrs.

A few moths were still there.

This one always impresses:
