Rustic Sphinx Moth Manduca rustica
David found this very large cool looking Rustic Sphinx Moth and was kind enough to email me the photos to share here. I liked how he used the cell phone to give a size reference so we can appreciate just how big the moth is.

He took the pictures in Broward County, Florida.

The caterpillars are green, with a horn, but I haven't found one (yet.)
