This Looks Like A Sphinx Moth

I found a moth while weeding yesterday; I think it just came out of its pupa. It fluttered into the grass and just rested there.sphinx moth? This moth was still in the grass today, in the same spot where I left it. I’m not sure what type of moth it is, I think it looks like a sphinx moth.

I took additional photos – sideways view and view of it abdomen. sphinx moth? sphinx moth?

This moth is the Rustic Sphinx moth (Manduca rustica)
