Thanks, Sandra....nice to hear from you. I'm not on this site very much, at least not like a decade ago :-)

Great shot of these fast moving critters. I love these moths. Hope all is well with you, Allen.

Thanks, nice to hear from you! I'm still getting out as much as possible. So much to see and photograph!!! How about yourself?

This is a large day-flying moth, acting like a small hummingbird and with clear wing patches, hence its name. Here it is feeding on a non-native plant called Teasel
