Our Special Little Guest

Today’s post features a very special little guest that I’ve seen only a few times in our lakeside butterfly garden. The Clearwing Hummingbird Moth is always fun to watch as it mimics the movements of the hummingbird, moving about flower gardens as it collects nectar. Here are a few of my favorite images, so far:
