I bet the moth is a butterfly. We have one just a bit different in Europe ; sometimes I have one in my garden ; it looks like a hummingbird but it is not.http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moro_sphinx(Beautiful proboscis and tail. Nice captures, Tim!)
lovely pics, tim! i think it's a hummingbird moth. we had them a few years ago - they are so pretty and fun to watch!
Beautiful set of nature, the first one is excellent in its color and sharpenss. I think too its a hummingbird moth and they come in different colors. Very fast too.
Whatever the moth is, Tim, it's gorgeous. I would love it if it IS a hummingbird moth. So perfect.
Thanks, marguerite, kirsten, sue anne, and ginnie. It is a beautiful hummingbird moth. Thanks for stopping by.
The name I've always been given for those moths is, "hummingbird moth." They're amazing.
