Hovering over the bee balm this afternoon there was an imitator. Pretending to be as a hummingbird, appeared this Hummingbird Clearwing Sphinx Moth.
An unusual visitor at the manor, this hummingbird moth dined on the bright pink blossoms, moving in circular fashion around each flower. Such an unusual bug, one that I actually like.
It’s summertime, so keep an eye out on your blossoms. Perhaps one will grace your garden as well.
