Seeing Clearly

Today’s post features an interesting visitor to my butterfly gardens, the Clearwing Hummingbird Moth. As of lately, I see at least one of these little beauties daily, both in my home butterfly garden and the butterfly garden I tend at the church.  Can’t get enough of these lovely visitors!

Here are a few images:
