Hummingbird Moth

It’s been awhile since my last post.  We were on vacation in NY,VT,TN & NC.   We had a great time with friends and family.  Even did some some trail riding on horseback. 

I spotted this Hummingbird Moth on my plants. It was kind enough to buzz around for video ..but not for photos.  It likes the Bougainville.

It was also very interested in the Mexican Petunias.  My Mother planted a few of these several years ago. Now they are bordering the road in and popping up around the tree in the backyard.

I’m back to buggin the bugs……chasing them around the yard with a camera.


  1. Sadly I cannot watch videos with our slow connection, but we have had many humming bird hawk moths on our lavender. Diane

  2. Wow excellent Carol! Not easy to follow!

  3. Very fun videos. I like how it weighs down the petunias. Hefty little moth.

  4. He certainly didn't spend any time at all on each flower! Nice videos though.

  5. Neat - I enjoyed your videos! I've always wanted to see a hummingbird moth... It sure flies about like a hummingbird.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
