Friend or foe?

Thought this was a dead leaf stuck in my Black Eyed Susan plant, till I noticed it was a living thing. Is it a moth? Will it be a problem for my plants/garden?

Yes, this is a moth. It will not harm your garden. This looks like a kind of sphinx moth. It is just resting on your black-eyed Susan.
