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

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

Description
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
