Hummingbird Moth

Last week a coworker (who knows I love butterflies) asked me, “Do you know much about insects?” I said I didn’t really and he went on to say, “There’s a moth I’ve been seeing … it looks like a hummingbird.” I said, “Oh, yeah — it’s a hummingbird moth.” I think he honestly didn’t believe me but I showed him a photo on Google that was labeled “hummingbird moth.” There have been a lot of them around lately.
