|Hummingbird Hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) |
When seen in the garden dipping into flowers for nectar, this moth is often mistaken for a hummingbird. In this picture, the moth is feasting from a butterfly bush flower.
Though this photo may not be the clearest, it does detail the wing structure and feeding organs.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
