A Blinded Sphinx Moth

Noticed this guy hanging on the side of a branch of the large oak tree the other day. It was so well camouflaged I thought it was a bit of bark initially. He was a very large moth, and would be more than a mouthful for any bat. When I got back home I found him on the net as a Blinded Sphinx. What a great name for a moth. According to the article they like oak and popular trees so he should have been right at home on the berm.
