Critter of the Day: flying shrimp

Some photos my daughter got, of a hummingbird moth in our lilacs, taken in the middle of June.

I just love those amazing shrimp-like bodies they have!

They are fast moving buggers, and hard to get photos of!

I can see why they are called hummingbird moths, though. They are almost big as hummingbirds!

Got three in this photo. 😀 They really love the lilacs! I don’t think I’ve ever seen them anywhere else.
