Awesome! They are so strange looking. I have only seen one around here once or twice and never when I have my camera with me.

I read that butterflies are one of the few pollinators with a tongue long enough to get the nectar from inside a petunia. I wonder if the hummingbird moth is considered a butterfly?

That is the only one I've seen to date. I looked but I could not find any reference to them being a butterfly. It was kind of fun to watch and stayed long enough for me to get my camera.

Thanks!
