Friends, at first i thought it was a hummingbird, then a huge butterfly, but after closer examination I discovered that i was photographing a moth, a very large moth that hovers like a hummingbird and is similar in size, hence its nickname, the hummingbird moth, it drinks the nectar through a proboscis like a butterfly, a very long straw to drink its soda. Its real name is the white-lined sphinx moth. Below is the moth from the front. til Tomorrow MJ
