Oh! Oh! Oh! I saw my first hummingbird moth yesterday! I was standing on
my front stoop, next to a clump of monarda. Hummingbirds have been visiting
regularly, and when I saw this little creature, I thought at first that's
what it was. But then I saw the antennae. What an amazing creature!
I just stood there watching as it flew from flower to flower just inches
from me. I wanted to get my camera, but was afraid to move. I could see it
uncurl its little proboscis and insert it into the flowerets. It looked
and acted so much like a hummingbird, I wonder how many times I might have
seen it fly by without knowing what it was.
