    1. Hummingbird moth! Isn’t it cool. I saw it last summer. I’m not sure of the flowers. They’re native to Texas though. So many beautiful little things in this great big world. πŸ¦‹πŸŒ·πŸ’πŸ§»πŸ¦„πŸ’ŒπŸ˜Š

  2. Perfect name, Hummingbird Moth😍 The plant is a Rose Mock-Verbina… it symbolizes love and psychic healing powers (I have an app that identifies plants from pictures)

  3. I didn’t know what I was looking at, a bee-like insect? No, it’s a bird, it looks like a hummingbird but it’s body is confusing. And then it turns out to be a moth, not a bird?!! What a strange looking creature, so great you capture it! Nature never cease to wonder. πŸ’—

    1. I thought the same things you did when I first saw it. I’m happy to have gotten a photo as he was zipping around so much! Nature’s better than tv πŸ˜ŠπŸ’

      1. You’re welcome πŸ™‚ they really are. When I was in Virginia, I noticed them feuding with the hummingbirds. I never expected that but I guess they’re fighting for the nectar. It was interesting. I wish they got along though. They’re both so beautiful.

      2. Oh, that’s fascinating. There were no hummingbirds near when I saw this one. If I get back there one day I’ll keep my eyes open though. I wish they got along too. I wish so many things were that way :)πŸ’

      3. Probably awwww. They’re hearts beat insanely fast. Hummingbirds are amazing. I would love to pet the moths and the birds β™‘ if only. You have to be careful. Certain moths will lose their ability to fly if you touch their wings. I might be getting it miced up with butterflies but I don’t know.
