It’s head is tucked in so you can’t see it.
Once it started moving it took on a completely different look. Now it looks like it has a long nose…like an anteater or something.
In August ‘10, I posted 2 videos of a Hummingbird Moth. You can see by their actions why many of us mistake them for Hummingbirds when we first see them.
Pentas are one of their larval plants….I have a few and will be checking them for catepillars this year…..now that I know what to look for.
