Hummingbird moth


 It has been a long time since I saw a hummingbird moth;  even longer since I have seen one not in flight.

WOW, I have NEVER seen one. What a spectacular creature! I guess they are pretty big.

Impressive insect. We have a Hummingbird Hawkmoth which is similar - and similarly elusive; it's a long time since I've seen one.

Looks like a cross between a bumblebee and a butterfly! Thanks for letting me see one for the first time!

Ann said...

I'm like Ginny. Other than pictures, I've never seen one. Those wings are simply amazing.

Oh, how interesting. They don't look very much like the hummingbird. I have a white flowering bush in my front yard, and last Spring and Summer I would see the hummingbird flutter about this bush when I watered it. Very nice photo, Rose. Have a good week.

Those things are amazing. The first one I saw I had no idea what it was.

I don’t know if I have ever seen one not in flight. They are interesting creatures. You got a good shot of this one.
