Humming Bird Moths

Hummingbird Moths

Thought of you and MoSup today when we were finally able to capture some pics of these interesting creatures.  We've only seen these Hummingbird Moths in SW Colorado.  They are adorable and today an actual hummer and two of these were feeding on the same plant.  Our presence sent to hummer off, but moths stayed.  Aren't they great?

Life without politics can be so refreshing! Enjoy

Thanks Juice, we are endlessly fascinated with hummers.

Saw some of those moths in Santa Fe a couple of weeks ago. Pretty little things.

We call em Spinx moths around here.
The really big ones show up in my dianthus and buddleia at dusk/night.
4" wingspans are common.Big enough to hear flying if it's quiet.

Didn't expect to see this here but daytime moths that mimic hummers? Awesome.
(still have those ABCDEFUCK beer steins.) :)

As interesting as those moths are they are the ones that lay the tomato horn worm eggs on my tomatos.At night I whack them with a tennis racket here in N.E. Florida.They are not welcome here.
