Hummingbird Moth

It’s also called a hummingbird hawk moth. Here is a nice video. The moth is shown right about 2:30.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYLtpqkMSvU

This is one of my photos taken at a flower shop. I was told that because you can see antennae on this creature… you know it is a Hummingbird Moth, not an actual Hummingbird. Birds don’t have antennae. Plus this creature has the long tongue that goes into the flowers. Hummingbirds have beaks.

I’ve had great fun learning about this little guy. Have a wonderful week. Julia
