Hummingbird moth

We have a new visitor to the farm.  Not only do we have about 30 hummingbirds this year but we have a hummingbird moth.  I love these little creatures as much as the hummingbirds.

  1. Thanks for this, Rita. I’ve never heard of a hummingbird moth before.

    • I found out about them about five years ago and was fascinated by them. They may be called something else but it’s the name I was given. I want to look them up to see what else attracts them, and more about how they are born.
