Hummingbird Moth

One  warm evening last September, we were graced with the appearance of a Hummingbird Moth attracted by the night scents from the nectar in the Nicotinia flowers. This moth, family Sphingidae, subfamily Macroglossinae, commonly referred to as Hummingbird, Sphinx, or Hawk-Moths,and often mistaken for Hummingbirds, are typically observed in the early evening, as summer is waning, drawing nectar from numerous fragrant evening flowers.
