Thanks to Cindy at Bug Safari for stopping by and cluing me in on the little moth that visited my blooms Saturday evening! What we thought at first was a hummingbird is a White Lined Spinx moth, also known as a Hummingbird Moth. How fun is that!! I've Googled it and found a lot of neat pictures including the caterpillar stage that Cindy has featured on her blog. I knew that Julie over at A Succulent Life would know what it was, and sure enough she knew where to go and who to ask! Thanks, Julie!!
I couldn't believe my eyes when Cindy e-mailed me back and told me what it was!!! Good grief...who woulda known there was such a thing??? Not me! Anyway...Cindy is so amazing! Glad you were able to locate more info and pictures of it! You really were seeing a hummingbird like appearance...so cool!!!ReplyDelete
