I found this moth one evening on a chair. The dictionary definition of a hawk moth is any of a family (Spinghidae) of moths with a thick, tapering body, slender wings, and a long feeding tube to suck the nectar of flowers.
Although I didn't follow the progress of these caterpillars around my plants, I'm sure they turned into beautiful moths later. I have to say that the most beautiful hawk moth i have photographed is the Hummingbird Moth. Sadly, not a single one of them has visited my garden this year!
