Kevin - You are too kind! So glad you enjoyed these. To answer your question, a Hummingbird Moth is one of several different species of Clearwing Moth. I used the more general term because I've not yet taken the time (or had the time - July is a very busy month in our parks) to be sure which species this one is.

Ronny - Thanks for the helpful feedback and kind words!

Harriet - We have had some interesting weather lately - that sky was not long before a brief but intense thunderstorm... Glad you enjoyed the photos, and the little bug's big meal!

Penolta - You are quite right with the caterpillar ID - thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed the side view of the little Clearwing - it took A LOT of really bad shots to get a few good ones. Do not know about the Snout butterfly - will try to find some time to research their habits soon...

GW - Thanks so much! Not sure if Snout butterflies come down your way, but hope you can come back our way someday to see them here!

Tachi - Thanks so much for your very kind words. Glad you enjoyed these!
