[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.
