Hummingbird Clearwing Moth July 23, 2009

The hummingbird moths have been visiting the garden often. They really enjoy the petunias. You can see why they are called "clearwing" moths, as you can see the pink of the petunia through the wings. I am looking out of my window from my computer desk and see one on the garden phlox.

They've been visiting my garden, too! They particularly seem to love my phlox! You're in VA--I'm dying to find out where-because I am too! In fact, there are quite a few Virginia-ers(!)blogging! I haven't yet met any of them, but plan to!

Great photos of the hummingbird clearwing! My last post has one on it, too! Have a great day!

Those moths are amazing, I haven't seen them before. Ant the flower photos on your last post are really pretty, I've just been catching up!

They really have a large body compared to their wings. The pictures are good. I can really see for myself how the wings are transparent in certain areas.
