Hummingbird Clearwing (moth)
I was taking photos of the hummingbirds in my backyard. They are arriving in good numbers now. At one time there were 3 fighting over one feeder - 2 females and one male. I noticed in the flowers this unusual bug - so wandered over to see what it was. Thanks to Justin Peters it was identified as a Hummingbird Clearwing (moth). I have never seen one before. You never know what you will see in your backyard. Today highlight was the moth, but I also had orioles, Carolina wren, cooper hawk, and more.
