This guy was quick. Flying around flowers then stopping mid-air to feed, I tried several times to get a photo but they were all blurry. That’s what happens when you don’t figure out how to adjust shutter speed. I’m not sure what it is, a bird or some kind or insect? He looked like a cross between a hummingbird and a bumblebee. I felt compelled to get closer but the thought of getting stung kept me at a good distance.
-edit- Thanks to Nora Locke I now know this is a Hummingbird Moth. Thank you!
It is a hummingbird moth. They fascinated me when I lived up north.
Beautiful picture, as usual!
Ahhhh..thank you! So that’s what it is? I’m going to Google hummingbird moth.
