    Found this guy on a walk around work. For scale, he's about as big a a man's palm. I think it is a rustic sphinx moth.

    That thing would be frightening if it ate meat.

    Found this guy one day hanging on to my side view mirror (this was in Honolulu). Even driving full speed, he wouldn't let go, lol.
