Sandie, Imperial Beach, Ca.


I just happened to be looking up what this wonderful looking creature that I have seen was. I could have sworn it was a hummingbird. But it seemed to friendly to me. I just happened to have my camera with me and when I had gotten home to look at the pictures I noticed that it didn't have a beak but a tube like thing which it was drinking the nectar. Also it had Antennea. Hummingbirds don't have anntennae. So I looked it up and found out that it was either a Hummingbird Sphinx Moth or a Hummingbird Hawk Moth. Either way its not a bird at all....its a bug!!. Probably one of the most extraordinary creatures I have seen in a long time, so I thought I would share it with you :) I've attached a photo of it.
