Suzele, Sudbury, Ontario

After reading your article on this beautiful creature in the Canadian Wildlife Federation Bulletin Spring 2008 regarding the hummingbird clearwing moth, I finally discovered what was the name of this new interesting insect. I had never seen this creature in Sudbury, Ontario before. My son, Kayvan and I were outside at dusk, last Spring one evening and noticed this hummingbird-like, butterfly-like insect who was feeding on my lilac bush. My son was quick with the camera and took a picture of it. This is the picture.
