"Thanks for the information. We suspected that the little fellas we ran across while hiking in the Joshua Tree National Park were the larvae of the Hawk Moth in the area. There were literally hundreds of them on the sides of the mountain we were hiking up. A Hawk Moth visited our moon flowers on the fence a week or so ago and scared the beeswax out of my wife."
