Tried to get some shots of this fella but made it very hard for me.
What is it called?
2 more pics.
woah thats really weird... I was actually just going to post a new thread asking the same question... if you don't mind I have a couple of pictures that may show it at a different angle. I think its a hummingbird but I am not sure.
Wow..what a timing and about the same pics aswell!
Yours are great pics indeed.
I found out what they are..They are Humming bird Hawk moth
Sorry I cant name an exact species but its probably a species of the Clearwing moths, which would be from the subfamily Macroglossinae, which includes various sphinx and hawk moths. It is also probaably from the genus Hemaris, which includes the clearwing moths. From your picture I cannot tell because the body isnt very easy to see, but if you have a better picture or remeber you can look through pictures of the Hemaris species and see if you could find yours.
That looks like it may be Hemaris gracilis.
Hmmmm......... Maybe Hemaris Senta.
More pics that hope you can Id it.
A moth pretending to be a hummingbird so he doesn't get eaten by some moth predator?
