The Wonderful Hummingbird Moth

I was able to get these pictures just a few hours ago .  The little Hummingbird moth was busy fueling up among the Bee Balm flowers .  Aren't these amazing little creatures!  You can see how they come by their name. 

Were you able to spot the moth in all of the photographs?  He can be rather hard to pick out as he is so well camouflaged.  But, since he is in constant motion, the blur of his wings  helps differentiate him from the surroundings.Posted by Picasa

  1. He's beautiful! The reason I'll believe that this is a moth and not a bird is the antenna that I can see. :)


Your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you for visiting, I hope you will come again soon.
