Tuesday Moth Blogging

This creature visited us last Sunday. At first we thought it might be a tiny hummingbird (aren't all hummingbirds tiny?) but it was silent. At last we decided it was a moth - but what kind? Neither of us have ever seen one like it.

These photos were all taken at 1/500th second exposure to stop the wings.

I'm pretty sure it's a Nessus Sphinx Moth - Amphion floridensis
