Hummingbird Moth

I love this little critter.

It looks like a little hummingbird but is really a moth, who flies around in the daytime (moths are ususally nocturnal)...

...and pokes at my phlox, looking for nectar. To see more about the hummingbird moth, click here.

I've never heard of a hummingbird moth, so this blog is not only beautiful to look at, it is also educational. Wouldn't it be great to see a hummingbird moth and a ruby-throated hummingbird side-by-side at your flowers?
