Moth 2: Hawk Moth

Hawk Moth
Hawk moth: Eupanacra elegantulus

Found this moderate size hawk moth clinging in my sack bag while I was crossing the river. It just stayed there no matter how I moved the bag. Maybe It’s tired and just wanted to hitch a ride, or maybe it just wanted to be photographed.

When I was leaving the water I checked him out and he’s already gone.
